Boeing 747-436, G-CIVB


Following an uneventful pushback, ground ATC requested that the aircraft move forward to clear a parking stand. At the time the tug was partially disconnected, and was in the process of being reconnected when the parking brakes were released and the aircraft rolled forward. This resulted in damage to the right nose wheel tyre and nose gear torsion links. The incident was attributed to a breakdown in communication between the headset operator and the aircraft’s commander.
