NYT article. Empty AA A321 in tow hit a shuttle bus or vice versa. Expensive fender-bender. Maybe traffic lights would solve these recurring problems...

Collision at C5. B closed between C4 and C6 shortly after collision. From the angle/position, looks like aircraft/tug got spun counterclockwise. One reporter noted damage underneath nose of aircraft.

Scroll down in linked article for photos of damage. Damaged A321 is a 2008 USAirways acquisition.

After a 7-month nose job, AA A321 N193UW flew again on 9/5/23.
