Chino California - 3 maintenance workers were performing engine run-ups approximately 100 yards away from a hangar at Chino Airport (Los Angeles area) - when the aircraft jumped the chocks and pierced a hangar wall. All 3 maintenance workers refused medical treatment.

Statement from the lead hand:

"Well I consulted with a well known weather expert on Avcanada and now I am sure a sudden localized tailwind was responsible for the aircraft suddenly leaping over the chocks".

Always amazes me how many people do a high power engine run while facing an obstacle when it is not necessary. Not sure of the circumstances here.
