BAe 146-RJ100, G-BZAT


On completion of loading the rear baggage hold, prior to the aircraft’s departure, the motorised baggage loading belt struck the forward edge of the hold aperture whilst reversing from the aircraft. The impact pulled the aircraft skin from the door fame structure and tore it in two places. Repairs to the aircraft were necessary prior to the aircraft returning to service. An examination of the loading belt showed that it was fully serviceable at the time of the incident.
