A Travel Air 4000 collided with a Cessna P206A on the ground at a non-towered municipal airport. The Travel Air was taxiing in after landing on runway 31, and the Cessna P206A was standing with its engine operating on the ramp. According to the pilot of the Travel Air, he taxied off of runway 31 onto taxiway B. As he taxied toward the airport parking ramp, he started a clearing "S" turn and observed the Cessna P206A directly in front of him. He turned hard to the left, but the outer 2 feet of the Travel Air's lower right wing passed through the propeller arc of the Cessna. A piece of the Travel Air's lower right wing was cut off.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:

The failure of the pilot of the other airplane to maintain physical clearance while taxiing.
