5/6/088096UBEECHC90ASAN JOSENORMAN Y. MINETA SAN JOSE INTLSJCSJCGRND GRD TAXI(-23)THE PILOT-IN-COMMAND (PIC) LANDED ON RUNWAY 11 AT SAN JOSE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (KSJC) AT APPROXIMATELY 1300 HOURS PDT. AS HE TURNED OFF THE RUNWAY AT TAXIWAY FOXTROT, THE KING AIR'S RIGHT PROPELLER STRUCK A TAXIWAY LIGHT ON THE RIGHT EDGE OF THE TAXIWAY. THE SOLE OCCUPANT OF THE AIRPLANE WAS NOT INJURED. THE PIC HAD ANGLED HIS PLANE FROM THE CENTERLINE OF THE RUNWAY TOWARD THE RIGHT EDGE OF THE RUNWAY INSTEAD OF STAYING ON THE YELLOW GUIDELINE TO THE TAXIWAY CENTERLINE. HE DID THIS TO EXIT THE RUNWAY QUICKLY WITHOUT APPLYING LATERAL G-FORCE TO THE LANDING GEAR. THE PIC NOW REALIZED THAT THIS WAS A MISTAKE BECAUSE HIS CHOSEN GROUND TRACK PLACED THE AIRPLANE'S RIGHT PROPELLER OVER THE UNSEEN TAXIWAY LIGHT. THE TAXIWAY LIGHT WAS PARTIALLY CAMOUFLAGED BY DARK GREEN WEEDS WHICH WERE GROWING ADJACENT TO THE LIGHT. BECAUSE THE AIRPLANE WAS EQUIPPED WITH LONGER THAN STANDARD PROPELLER BLADES, THE TAXIWAY LIGHT WAS STRUCK BY ONE BLADE OF THE PROPELLER. THE IMPACT DAMAGED BOTH THE LIGHT AND THE PROPELLER BLADE. THE PIC WAS COUNSELED ON THE IMPORTANCE OF KEEPING HIS AIRCRAFT ON THE CENTERLINE OF BOTH THE RUNWAY AND TAXIWAY. ALTHOUGH THIS INCIDENT WAS CAUSED BY THE PILOT'S DECISION TO DEVIATE FROM THE CENTERLINE OF THE TAXIWAY, CONTRIBUTING TO THE INCIDENT WAS THE AIRPORT'S FAILURE TO REMOVE THE WEEDS WHICH PARTIALLY CAMOUFLAGED THE TAXIWAY LIGHT. THE WEEDS HAVE BEEN BROUGHT TO THE ATTENTION OF THE AIRPORT MANAGEMENT.
