Two maintenance guys were ground taxiing a Northwest BAC-146 from the hanger to a gate. On the way, the voice recorder captures one guy saying if they go a little faster they could get the nose off the ground. They were unaware that the auto throttles were in Take-Off mode (from there actions) as they approached the gate, they found they had no brakes (a result evidently on being in the Takeoff mode) and proceeded to slam through the jet way. Both the aircraft and Jetway appeared to be totaled. Jobs down the tube?
