An air bridge collapsed as a Cathay Pacific flight was pushing back from the gate at Hong Kong International today.
Reports say Cathay Pacific Flight 532, an Airbus A330, was starting to push back when the jet bridge collapsed and fell on to the ground (see photo). The falling bridge also ripped the door off of the jet.
There are no reports of any passengers being injured as they were already seated in the plane.
The only injury being reported so far is the air bridge operator and those injuries are minor.
The jet bridge was destroyed and damage to the aircraft is substantial.
The cause of the incident is of course being investigated.
