BAe 146-200, G-ZAPO
During pushback from the stand, a loud bang was heard on the flightdeck of the aircraft. The pushback continued, but the towbar became disconnected from the tug due to a failed shear pin. The tug then stopped, but the aircraft could not be halted in time to prevent it colliding with the stationary tug. The nose of the aircraft penetrated the windscreen of the tug, but no injuries occurred.
