This week, two American Eagle flights were cancelled after their regional jets were hit by a fuel truck at the Dallas Fort-Worth B terminal. The damage is incredible, with part of the first plane’s wing shattered, and the front of the truck wedged into the end of the second plane’s wing.
It’s hard to imagine how the trick driver managed to cause quite such a mess of two planes…
