The nose of the aircraft impacted the tail of a parked Loganair Embraer ERJ-145 (registered G-SAJS) and became lodged underneath the Embraer and lifting the latter’s right main gear off the ground. 

Nobody got hurt during the mishap, but both aircraft got damaged. The British Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) has launched an investigation. Loganair confirmed that no passengers or crew members were on board the aircraft, the airline said that a replacement aircraft was available to bring the passengers to their destination.
