Disaster! One Man Destroyed A $35 Million Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet Engine


Hilarious or terrifying? I am not sure, but this video showing one man’s mega-mess as he manoeuvred a 747 at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport. The bash will have cost the Dutch airline KLM its 747 engine, an engine roughly priced between $12 and $35 million (according to KLM).

KLM’s Boeing 747 was being dragged into a parking bay by a tractor when the engine got in the way. Ouch!
