“A Loganair Embraer 145 regional jet, parked with no passengers or crew members aboard, was hit by a former Flybe Bombardier Q400 aircraft, which we understand was being prepared for departure after being stored at Aberdeen Airport. The nose of the Q400 impacted the rear starboard side of the Embraer, becoming lodged underneath and lifting the right main gear off the ground.

“The most important thing is that no-one was injured in the incident; with the crew working on the ex-Flybe aircraft being safe and well, yet understandably shaken.”

No passengers were on-board the Loganair aircraft and no-one was injured in the incident.
