NTSB Factual Report

On May 4, 2005, at 1204 eastern daylight time, a Cessna 152 was substantially damaged while taxiing at Millville Municipal Airport (MIV), Millville, New Jersey. The certificated private pilot was not injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan had been filed between Monmouth Executive Airport (BLM), Belmar, New Jersey, and Millville. The personal flight was being conducted under 14 CFR Part 91.

According to pilot, he was "preparing to park [the airplane when the] left wingtip struck the sundeck of a restaurant adjoining the ramp." The pilot further stated that "it appeared as if the wing should clear the deck's railing, but it seemed as if the wing dipped possibly because of a crack in the pavement just before reaching the deck."

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's misjudgment of the airplane's distance to the restaurant sundeck.
