I dunno but how on earth does this keep happening. Just had the WJA and SWG clipping the other day at YYZ with a fire started to boot. Who the bleep is watching for two big things coming that close to each other. Head scratcher..
Bad employees, under trained, and that don't care. The airlines get what they pay for!!!
Nothing to do with airlines..both incidents were under tug control.
This 1 wasnt, however, under tug control..in this case the pilots need glasses https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/atlas-747-wing-clips-miami-air-737-at-baltimore-444700/
These dang tugs have got to get ice tires on them..both instances at YYZ and JFK were under tug control and Im betting the tugs slid on the ramps...either that or the drivers need glasses.
I think we will get more of those "wing shakes" when the 777X rolles out
