Separation Anxiety (Bad Language in Video)


There are many ways to ground an airplane and ramp attendants at what sounds like a U.S. airport (based on the profanity-laced epithets from one of the ground crew members) found a novel approach. The incident appears to have happened in late September or early October and involves a Turkish Airlines A330 at the gate. A tug suitable for maneuvering the widebody somehow got tangled with the No. 2 engine nacelle and separating the two was painful to say the least. We weren’t able to find any other account of the mishap but it looks like an expensive night for someone. Again, there is some profane language at the beginning of the video but we left the sound on because, well, you’ll see.
