View Full Version : Ground incident at GVA

26th Jan 2005, 15:34
Appears to be an A319 with a jack-knifed towbarless tractor wedged under the fuselage. Couldn't see much more due to the number of fire trucks and busses around it.
Really stong winds all day, currently gusting 90 Km/h and snow blown from grass areas drifting across the apron, sub-zero temperature.
Any further info?

Which company? EZY? Air France? Swiss?

They normally use self-maouevring stands, but I guess they were closed due to the high winds.

The qualtiy of the snow clearing and apron de-icing at Geneva leaves much to be desired.
Tugs were having problems doing pushback because of the inch or so of ice on some of the stands.
