Bombardier DHC-8-402 Dash 8, G-JEDW
After an uneventful push back and engine start, when the tug and tow bar had been disconnected from the aircraft, the aircraft started moving forwards before the pilots were ready to taxi. The aircraft ran into the tow bar, damaging it and the aircraft’s nose wheels. The parking brake had not been applied at the appropriate time during the push back sequence.
