If you've ever wondered what happens when an expensive business jet collides with an asphalt roller, you might ask Sony Corp. Their Mystere Falcon 900 was taxiing for departure from Teterboro Airport last Sept. 28 when the left wing clipped the machine on a taxiway. According to the NTSB preliminary report, neither the captain of the Falcon nor the roller operator claimed to see the other coming. No one was hurt but we suspect it ruined a lot of people's day.
