It’s Brazil, the guy who did it has probably already been shot.
That WAS the Poke-Yoke!
Just imagine what could have happened if they hadn’t put that last Kg of cargo onboard to bring the nose wheel up, then they tried to take off. The improper loading would have shown up in a very nasty pile of flaming wreckage 10 seconds after the aircraft rotated. So, it worked…..the Poke-Yoke prevented a failure! A classic example of TPS in an air cargo application.
