Narrative:
Whilst taxiing out at Lashendon (Headcorn) Airfield, Shenley Farm Cottages, Headcorn, Ashford, Kent, on 26.08.2007 collided with a parked Robin DR400, G-GGJK. The commander reported that the handling pilot was taxiing slowly towards the runway and commenced a turn. At about this time the commanderís attention was distracted by an intermittent headset microphone problem.

Both the handling pilot and the commander considered that there was sufficient clearance to avoid a parked Robin, however the Tiger Moth struck the Robin, damaging both aircraft. Nobody was injured.

Nature of Damage sustained to: Tiger Moth G-ANJA - damage to lower left mainplane and gear, and to Robin G-GGJK - damage to left mainplane and flap. The registration G-ANJA was cancelled by the CAA on 22-12-2008, but was quickly reinstated on 27-02-2009 (three months later), albeit to a new owner in March, Cambridgeshire
