There appears to be a possibility the aircraft may have "jumped" the inadequate sized wheel chocks and that the braking system was either not used or non operational or 'armed' at the time.
For unexplained reasons it would appear the aircraft was not positioned for engine test runs that would allow for such an incident to be avoided. News media suggest the qualifications of those in the cockpit will be reviewed as part of the investigation.
The aircraft collided with a AS350 Helicopter, VH-HWA, causing significant damage.
