Southwest plane backs up into a JetBlue plane @ KBOS
« on: June 09, 2014, 10:30:52 AM »
A Southwest airline plane has backed up
Into what appears to be a parked JetBlue Plane at Logan this morning. I guess the ground crew will be at fault on this one.

It appears that the JetBlue plane was not damaged.
Ha ha...  The carefully worded and technically accurate statement was: "The Boston Globe reported that the JetBlue plane was unharmed."

I suppose you have to admit that's true, as written...

Hahahah. That's what I get for plagiarizing.
To be honest the tweet they sent out in the morning when I first started didn't show damage to the horizontal stabilizer. Just damage to the winglet. I like to hear what was said on the ramp after this incident.

I hope "STOP!!"  was said.  :-D   But probably not loud enough.

I know someone that works on the flight line.  The tug was still running with no one in it.  They knew they screwed up bad :)
