Analysis

Two airplanes were taxiing when a ground collision occurred.

According to the pilot of the Cessna 172, he was taxiing towards the run-up area, when he saw the engine start of a Cessna 150. He said it was stationary in a parking spot facing the taxiway as he proceeded forward. As he continued to taxi, he saw the right wing of the Cessna 150 pass under his wing toward his airplane. As he tried to avoid a collision, the right wing tip collided with the windscreen. During the collision the right aileron of the Cessna 150 sustained substantial damage.

According to the pilot of the Cessna 150, he was preparing to exit the ramp area and taxi to runway 08. After making a radio call, he checked the taxiway for other aircraft, and said his sight was limited due to an airplane that was parked next to him. He said that he checked to see if any airplanes were on the taxiway and did not see any. He pulled out onto the taxiway and felt a slight bump when the Cessna 172 struck his airplane from behind.

Both pilots reported no preimpact mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplanes that would have precluded normal operation.

Probable Cause and Findings

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:
The pilot of the Cessna 150’s failure to avoid the taxiing Cessna 172.

Accident Number: WPR22LA077
Date and Time: January 10, 2022, 10:15 Local
Registration: N6863K
Aircraft: Piper PA-16 
Aircraft Damage: Substantial
Defining Event: Loss of control on ground
Injuries: 1 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Instructional

Analysis

The student pilot in the tailwheel-equipped airplane reported that during the full stop landing roll, he applied too much pressure to the left brake pedal and the airplane veered left. The airplane exited the left side of the runway, entered the soft grass surface, and subsequently nosed over. The airplane sustained substantial damage to the right-wing lift strut. The pilot reported that there were no preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.

Probable Cause and Findings

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:
The pilot’s excessive left brake pedal application during landing roll, which resulted a loss of directional control, runway excursion, and nose over.

Findings

Personnel issues Use of equip/system - Student/instructed pilot
Personnel issues Aircraft control - Student/instructed pilot
Aircraft Directional control - Not attained/maintained
