Last Years news!
when in a vehicle, moving in the vicinity of aircraft. the aircraft has the full right of way and the vehicle has NO right-of-way. My dad was the worst but nothing ever happened. It is sadly stupid to come in contact with a plane while in a vehicle. Being 83, I have seen and heard of several instances. Harold Brown
Note that this occurred last year.
We cover everything because we’ve seen just about e.v.e.r..y....never mind.
Wow, I was not expecting the accident to be that bad just from reading the title. A fuel truck T-bones a taxiing aircraft full of passengers at speed, severely damaging the aircraft and spilling fuel in the process. To me this is a major incident. The truck driver's act was criminal in nature, even if it was accidental. No matter how idiot-proof we try to make aviation they always make a better idiot.
