2014-07-09 Shaheen Air Airbus A320 rolls against equipment at Islamabad
The aircraft was parked at bay #5 after arriving on flight NL720 from Jeddah when it was caught by high winds and began to move foreward until its nosegear hit a conveyor belt loader. The underside of the nose came into contact with a ground power unit (GPU) until the Airbus stopped.
Nobody was injured but the aircraft was taken out of service for inspections.
Obviously no parkign brake was set and ground personnel omitted to place chocks to the tires.
