The Metro 23 aircraft was undergoing maintenance at Brisbane (BNE) during which flammable chemicals were used inside the cockpit. Power was applied to the aircraft and the fumes ignited, causing an explosion that blew out the bottom of the cockpit and injuries to the engineer who switched on power. The engineer was thrown to the rear of the cabin by the blast.
