Left-front door of a Scoot Boeing 787-8 ripped off from the airframe as it was getting ready for the routine maintenance at Singapore Changi airport on 7 January.
No passengers were involved and no injuries were sustained while an investigation has been convened,” says Scoot in a statement. Apparently the aircraft seemed to have had rolled backwards when the chocks were removed without the tug attached but with the aerobridge still connected.
This has caused the rip. The affected aircraft is owned and managed by the Singapore Airlines low-cost subsidiary.
