Aircraft accidents related to weight and balance issues are occurred due to for instance incorrect loading of the aircraft and the use of wrong takeoff weight for performance calculations amongst others. The present paper gives a review of weight and balance related accidents that have occurred with commercial aircraft worldwide. The objective of this research paper is to provide insight into the safety factors that are related to aircraft involved in exceeding their weight and balance limits. The paper analysed the most important factors involved in weight and balance accidents/incidents such are loadsheet errors, incorrect loading, and shifting of cargo. Finally the infl uence of load sheet errors on aircraft weight and balance systems are analysed using the data sample of aircraft F100.
