British Aerospace Jetstream 4102, G-MAJZ
After a normal pushback the pushback crew were unable to disconnect the towbar; the aircraft commander decided to return the aircraft to the stand. Headsets had not been used during the pushback and communication was via hand signals. The tug attempted to pull the aircraft back onto stand whilst the aircraft parking brake was still applied, and the nose gear collapsed.
