Shot of the day: Oops!

I'm pretty sure that the tug is supposed to be in front of the airplane -- not beneath it!

This was a late-night maintenance reposition that went slightly awry. There were no passengers on the plane, and as far as I know, no injuries. It took about an hour to extricate the tug from underneath the aircraft and reopen the taxiway.


  1. Judging from recent entries, I don't think I'd want the job of tug driver at LAX.

    1. Pretty sure that both of these were equipment failures, but I'd have to concur.
