Work starts early on runway maintenance, a/c hits equipment!

Work started early on a runway at Chonquin, China on 26 August. Contractors set up their equipment, but the runway was still in use! A China Express CRJ9 aborted a take-off, but collided with equipment and was damaged.

Accident: China Express CRJ9 at Chongqing on Aug 26th 2014, rejected takeoff on runway under maintenance
