Can't say much about this one.

Except perhaps this: Anyone who is that stupid shouldn't be flying an aeroplane in the first place, so frankly, it's a blessing that he wrote his aeroplane off, the skies were definitely a safer place that day although the ramp area certainly wasn't.

Amazing video.  Think he was lucky it did not cause more damage.

What kind of idiot hand props an SR22 anyway? Dead battery? Surely there are battery carts around an airport...

Even so, one should have chocks in place to prevent a runaway like that. It's a bloody miracle that he wasn't chopped to bits by the prop as he ran in front of the aircraft!

I'm fairly certain that his insurance company was not happy with him.

Parking brake??  Reminds me of hand-cranking my old '59 Renault Dauphine.  Honk, honk...beep, beep!:blink:

I'll give this a try on the Airbus V2500 engines this morning. Should start right up! 🙂
