A Scoot Boeing 787-8 had its left-front door ripped from the airframe during preparation for routine maintenance at Singapore Changi airport on 7 January.
"During preparation for routine maintenance, a door on a Scoot 787 aircraft sustained some damage and is currently undergoing recovery. No passengers were involved and no injuries were sustained while an investigation has been convened," says Scoot in a statement to FlightGlobal. "Consequently, we do not expect major disruption to our operating network."
The affected aircraft bears the registration 9V-OFI (MSN 37125).
According to social media reports, the aircraft had rolled backwards when the chocks were removed without the tug attached but with the aerobridge still connected.
