An oveweight is a potential accident cause involving excessive cargo loading that can mostly happen to


transport aircraft, specially to passenger planes when baggage total weight is not properly calculated. Very few of these cases end with consequences when the plane is stopped on the ground, while the rest has no consequences until it's too late and the plane takes off and can't fly and then crashes.
