Haste makes waste part 2: Aeroflot Airbus A350 leaves de-icing position too early


On 16 December, Aeroflot flight SU158 between Moscow Sheremetyevo, Russia and Cancun Mexico didn’t go as planned as – during a de-icing procedure – the Airbus A350-900 (registered VP-BXC) departed too early from the de-icing stand. 

As a result, the de-icing truck – still busy with his works – tipped over injuring the operator.

Aeroflot was forced to switch to sister aircraft VP-BXD to operate the flight.
