On August 3, 2021, about 1120 central daylight time, a Cessna 172, N6778A, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident at Ford Airport (IMT), Iron Mountain, Michigan. The pilot and passenger were not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

The pilot stated that following a local flight, he taxied toward parking at IMT, an uncontrolled airport. As the Cessna 172 passed about 200 ft behind a parked Bombardier CRJ-200, mechanics aboard the CRJ-200 were not aware of the Cessna 172 and increased engine power during a maintenance test. The jet blast from the CRJ-200 lifted the Cessna 172 tail, which resulted in substantial damage to the left wing and strut.
