Piper PA-28-180 Cherokee, G-ATTX
The pilot started the engine and the aircraft immediately began to move forward and accelerate. It continued for a short distance before the nose of the aircraft struck the airfield mower, which was attached to a tractor and parked next to the main hangar. The aircraft parking brake had not been selected ON and the pilot was unable to apply the hand brake in time to prevent the collision.
