A Pietenpol Air Camper, amateur built by Claude Prost, started to move on its own and ran away after hand propping (starting the engine by swinging the propeller) without a pilot or competent person at the controls or being tied to an object and subsequently crashed into the Aero club's building at Carpentras Airfield (LFNH), Pernes-les-Fontaines.
Nobody was on board, the aircraft received substantial damage, and there were no victims.
