On 15 December 2015 a BAe Avro RJ85 registered EI-RJT was scheduled for a flight from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol to London City Airport. It was pushed back from gate D24 at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. After the first engine was started, the tug driver lowered the aircraft’s nose gear.
While starting the last engine, the brake pressure suddenly dropped and the aircraft began to move forward. The aircraft collided with the tug, resulting in substantial damage to the lower front fuselage and slight damage to the tug. There were no injuries.
