often. Hangar docking is a total pain even with doors closed. tows into hangars without docking can still be tight. Youd be surprised the amount of tow operations there are everyday

i expect the incidence rate to be extremely low when factoring for number of tows accomplished successfully... but still... a 0 incidence rate is the target, not low incidence rates
