Accident at Nobleford, AB (Farm Strip)


1999-08-18: The owner of the wheel equipped 177RG attempted to start his aircraft. After investigating the pilot determined that the battery appeared to be dead however, the owner found that when he wiggled the battery terminals electric power was restored. He placed his father in the pilot's (left seat) to start the engine while he moved the battery terminals. The engine started but the father who was unfamiliar with the operation of the aircraft was unable to restrain a forward movement. The aircraft leaped forward, struck a fuel tank stand with the left wing, swung around and struck the second fuel tank stand with the propeller collapsing the stand and the tank on the aircraft. Damage was described as left wing leading edge crushed, propeller bent, upper cowling crushed and nose gear collapsed. There were no reported injuries to either the father who was in the aircraft or the son who was outside the aircraft. OPI - Enforcement
