Incident at Moncton NB


1997-04-07: The Air Nova BAE146 with call sign ARN011 was parked at the loading ramp with only the two pilots onboard when the wind caused the aircraft to move. The number 1 engine struck the loading ramp causing substantial damage to the front of the engine and engine pilon structure. The nose wheel was chocked and the brakes were on. The ramp area was slippery and the winds were gusting 25 to 40 knots. Update: After an inspection of the engine mounts and the pylon, no damage was found. The damage was restricted to the intake area. Engine and cowlings were replaced and the aircraft released to service. TSB case closed
