July 28, Pelham, Ga. / Cessna 188


At about 09:30 eastern time, a ground refueler was killed when he walked into the turning prop of a Cessna A188B agricultural airplane at Pelham. The pilot landed and waited in the parking area to be refueled and have chemical added for aerial application. Another airplane was parked in front of the accident airplane and was also being refueled. The refueler put fuel in the left wing of the forward airplane and the right wing of the accident airplane. Then the refueler turned to his right (toward the engine) and walked into the prop. The refueler had worked for the company for four days.
