Stampe SV4A (Modified), G-AZNK
After taxiing in front of a hangar for a short distance, the pilot found that the point at which he intended to turn onto the grass surface had been obstructed by an arriving aircraft. The pilot continued to taxi the aircraft in an attempt to find another suitable point and, in doing so, entered an area not intended for aircraft movements. In searching for a new turning point, he looked solely out of the left side of the cockpit and did not see a road sign and traffic island positioned to his right. The aircraft struck the road sign at slow speed, damaging the propeller and landing gear.
