Re: Towing Incident at China Airport Kills Ground Worker

Recommended Posts

While this ISN'T your typical towing scenario, a TUG operator pulling a regulation sized aircraft was run-over and killed when the TUG's nose-bar detached. Bacause the nose-bar is behind the TUG and under the aircraft's nose, it wasn't immediately seen where the TUG operator nor the pilot could have reacted in tim. The TUUG's driver was killed and a second person on-board the tug was injured. Christine and I send our prayers to the operator and their family. What a horrible accident. Attached is the news video that I'll consider graphic to some viewers.
