A student pilot was taxiing his airplane into the runup area at what he thought was a safe distance from another airplane that was performing a runup. The moving airplane's left wing contacted the stationary airplane's propeller, resulting in substantial damage to the moving airplane's left wing. Neither pilot reported any preaccident mechanical failures or malfunctions with their respective airplanes that would have precluded normal operation.

Probable Cause: The student pilot's failure to allow adequate separation when passing the parked airplane, which resulted in a ground collision.
