On June 23, 2013, about 2115 Pacific daylight time, a Cessna 182T airplane, N411CP, and a Cessna 172S airplane, N694RR, collided while on the ground at the Montgomery Field Airport (KMYF) San Diego, California. All three pilots involved were uninjured. The Cessna 182T sustained substantial damage to the right aileron, and the Cessna 172S sustained substantial damage to the left wing. The Cessna 182T was registered to KQM Aviation in Bristow, Virginia, and the Cessna 172S was registered to Rowbot, LLC, of Santa Monica, California. Both airplanes were operated under the provisions of 14 CFR Part 91. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed.

The pilot of the Cessna 182T reported that he had just completed a practice night instrument approach and was taxiing along taxiway “H” to return to the departure end of the runway when he suddenly saw another airplane come from his right side and turn in front of him. He attempted to stop his airplane; however, his airplane’s propeller struck the airplane’s left wing which resulted in substantial damage.

The pilot of the 172S reported that he was taxiing from transient parking and onto taxiway “H” when they suddenly heard a noise. They turned to their left and observed a propeller from another airplane. He did not observe the Cessna 182T until after it had struck their airplane.
