February 22, 2009, Tucson, Ariz., Cessna 172H


At about 1457 Mountain time, the airplane sustained minor damage while taxiing. The student pilot and flight instructor were not injured. Visual conditions prevailed.

After landing and while taxiing back to the ramp, the student pilot and instructor observed an MD-80 airplane holding short of a runway. As they slowed the airplane to hold short of the MD-80 due to possible jet blast, it powered up to taxi onto the runway. Subsequently, the airplane tipped over onto its right wing and sustained minor damage.
