Was told today that a pilot in McGrath had a dead battery and decided to hand prop. Well as you can guess it didn't turn out well.. The idle must have been too high and it started moving without him and during it's run destroyed two other planes.... One of which was the AK State Trooper plane. Private plane had severe fuselage damage and the trooper plane had a wing broken. The runaway plane suffer a prop strike and extensive damage as well.
Said day but lesson to be learned..
I know other pilots hand prop without the aid of another person. What do you do to insure your plane doesn't become a runaway?
