About ten years ago, I failed to pay attention to the back of an aircraft I was parking - missed the stop marks and hit the hangar.

Did it again this evening. Hangar roof only has enough clearance if I push the aircraft in along a line of slabs placed for the purpose - nosewheel ones higher than mains. Forgot exactly why I'd done that.

The flight really isn't over until the hangar's closed. And you can make the same mistake twice.

Bum.

Sorry to read that Pete. Hopefully not to difficult and costly to fix it.

Ouch!

Bad news :( Something most of us come close (or very close!) to doing.
Hope it's not an expensive one.

Thanks for those kind words.

It's the first time I've flown after work for some time and without a particularly early night on Sunday. Took a neighbour up for the first time for a more or less perfect bimble around the local sights. Seems like it doesn't seem to take that much tiredness or relaxation from passenger stress to reduce vigilance.
