Socata TB9 Tampico G-BHOZ

Summary:

As the aircraft taxied along the tarmac Taxiway B parallel to Runway 09, the pilot missed his intended right turn onto the parallel grass Taxiway B. The pilot candidly admits that this was due to a loss of concentration. Distracted by the missed turn, the pilot then failed to see and avoid a plastic safety barrier which had been installed around a hole in the taxiway. The right wingtip of the aircraft struck the barrier, resulting in minor damage to the wing leading edge.
