Investigation has been launched into incident involving a DHL aircraft
German logistics firm DHL has launched an investigation into how one of its aircraft suffered a nose up incident while offloading cargo at Abu Dhabi International Airport on Tuesday.
“We can confirm that an Airbus A300-600F aircraft, operating flight DHX520 from Lahore to Abu Dhabi by a DHL airline suffered a nose up incident during the offloading process at Abu Dhabi International Airport on April 1, 2014,” the company said in a statement.
“DHL is liaising with the airport and relevant authorities in order to lift the aircraft to its proper position and to assess the damage,” it added.
No injuries were reported as a result of the incident.
I don't know why I feel it looks like 1st April fool that came late
ItÂ´s not an April fool. If the aircraft is unloaded in a wrong manner, off- loading the forward part of the aircraft with load in the aft it will "tail tip" On some aircraft, Boeing 747 Cargo, they put a jack in the aft to prevent it to tip.
its all that gold
This is unfortunately not a single event. It hapens from time to time. There are clear procedures in place how to step off- and onload to avoid this. Most probably poor trained ground staff.
