A camera recording of the internal security system recorded the moment when an ATR 42-600 turboprop plane hit a boarding bridge in a ground incident on Thursday, October 15.


The aircraft should not return to fly so fast, because in cases of propeller impact – the so-called “propeller strike” – an internal evaluation of the engine components is necessary. Thus, in addition to replacing the damaged propeller itself, it will be necessary to remove the engine.

According to data from the fleet database sites, EasyFly has at least 12 more ATR 42 and five ATR 72 aircraft, in addition to a BAE Jetstream 41.

Until the moment of publication of this article, there is no information on injuries, either inside the aircraft due to the sudden stop, or on the ground due to a possible emission of debris by the impact of the propeller in operation.
