Narrative:
The pilot inadvertently left the throttle of the aircraft in the full throttle position after a throttle linkage check operation for any chaffing or cable movement damage. The engine was started and the aircraft immediately moved rapidly forward on the taxiway for a distance of about 40 metres. The left wing clipped the sliding door of a hangar, then speared unintentionally left until the three blade Bolly propeller struck the hangar sliding door. The aircraft continued on a left rotation and further struck the tip of the right wing. The aircraft was immediately turned off and the pilot disembarked.
