Mine was about two months into my job as a ramper. I brought in an A319 and was performing the "walk-around." Just as I crossed the center line of the aircraft, aft the rear cargo door, I sensed something wasn't right. I stopped and looked around. Then I realized the #1 engine was still active. 5 more feet and I would have wound up a hurting unit.

what was the worst mistake of your career
|Quoting JetMech (Reply 9):|
My worst mistake was running a maintenance stand into the side of an A340 engine and tearing a big gash into it. I thought the stand would clear the engine but it didn't.

My worst mistake was probably not going into medicine as I had planned. "Just one year in the airline business, then I go to medical school".

One night on a 733 I went to make sure the battery switch was off and I accidentally flipped the engine fire extinguisher switch just below the battery which caused MX to come out and fix the A/C.

For me.. I had a pax that had a black eye. He asked to preboard and I told him he could not since he was not disabled. He then boarded but complained. A month or so later I was pulled into the office.. Apparently a black eye is a temporary disability and I was in violation of the Air carrier access act.. Oops..
