	N317NA was parked in its normal spot on the ramp.  The mechanic was
	working on the aircraft when a Cessna 172 taxied southbound into the
	parking area.  The mechanic saw that the plane was on a collision
	course with N317NA.  He attempted to alert the taxing aircraft but was
	unable to.  The Cessna?s left wing came into contact with N317NA left
	winglet.  Initial examination of N317NA by the mechanic showed no
	damage. The Cessna had about a 3-4 inch dent in the leading edge about
	½ deep.  

Additional Info: 
	The PC 12 was taken out of service while maintenance personnel
	conducted an inspection for hidden damage. Aircraft was then returned
	to service.
