On 7/89 at akn I was involved in an incident while taxiing out for takeoff. I received a jet blast which resulted in what FAA called minor damage to my airplane. The propeller was bent with one side broken and the right wing tip was slightly bent up. After the fishing and hunting seasons were over (about 10/wed/89), I replaced the propeller and flew my aircraft down to my hometown, some 14 mi down the river to wsn, where it would be watched over while I resided in anchorage. Later, after some thought and research into the matter of flying an aircraft with minor damages, I realized I should have had a ferry permit. I got my sincere apologies and will no longer engage in the activities of moving another damaged aircraft west/O a ferry permit.

Narrative: ON 7/89 AT AKN I WAS INVOLVED IN AN INCIDENT WHILE TAXIING OUT FOR TKOF. I RECEIVED A JET BLAST WHICH RESULTED IN WHAT FAA CALLED MINOR DAMAGE TO MY AIRPLANE. THE PROP WAS BENT WITH ONE SIDE BROKEN AND THE RIGHT WING TIP WAS SLIGHTLY BENT UP. AFTER THE FISHING AND HUNTING SEASONS WERE OVER (ABOUT 10/WED/89), I REPLACED THE PROP AND FLEW MY ACFT DOWN TO MY HOMETOWN, SOME 14 MI DOWN THE RIVER TO WSN, WHERE IT WOULD BE WATCHED OVER WHILE I RESIDED IN ANCHORAGE. LATER, AFTER SOME THOUGHT AND RESEARCH INTO THE MATTER OF FLYING AN ACFT WITH MINOR DAMAGES, I REALIZED I SHOULD HAVE HAD A FERRY PERMIT. I GOT MY SINCERE APOLOGIES AND WILL NO LONGER ENGAGE IN THE ACTIVITIES OF MOVING ANOTHER DAMAGED ACFT W/O A FERRY PERMIT.
