Don't worry Guv. It won't cost loads. I'll soon pull that dent out, a touch of filler and blow some paint over it. It'll have to be cash, mind you.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Didn't Blue Peter do something for this using paper mâché and sticky-back plastic?

Re: There goes my no-claims bonus !

Ok, serious point about how it actually happened. Having worked around airports for many years and a lifelong passion for matters of aviation.

The consensus in the blog that goes with that link seems to blame the push-back tug driver.

I beg to differ. Aircraft are pushed back under the direction of the control tower ground controller, it is he or she who should have ensured there was no obstruction behind before telling the tug driver it was clear to push.

Unless of course the tug driver ignored all the rules and did it his way, then the records will show it.

Perhaps is was a "cash for crash" set-up, lets see how many passengers put in whiplash claims. 

Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

You were jesting obviously, but if anyone is worried, there's no chance in the UK.

The orbit doesn't take it further north than 43° latitude.
