Emirates A380 incident at YYZ

EK242 (A380)from YYZ to DXB was cancelled tonight after a catering truck collided with the aircraft as it was being readied. Extent of damage is unknown yet, but it was sufficient to make the flight a "no go".

Now, that doesn't pile up as a 'fault' on Airbus.

If something like that gets you excited, you must lead a pretty boring life

sec 3...

Yup.. boring life. Except I was supposed to be on that flight. So I thought I'd share the info.

How about you? Exciting life? Surprised you have time to post. Even if it's just to insult someone you don't know. Have a nice day anyway.

Repairs could be a little interesting since the skin at most of the service doors is Glare.

The caterer had finished servicing the upper deck, and was trying to lower the truck when there was some type of equipment failure. He had to scramble out onto the wing to escape the truck, when the truck came to rest on the wing. They may require a crane to remove truck from wing. I don't think this airplane is going anywhere for awhile...

It was a airbus designed "drive by wire" catering truck, with minimal operator input required.

Which Wing?

There's an A-380 in Singapore that could use a replacement wing if the left wing is undamaged. So perhaps Airbus can take a complete wing set off the production line and send the two wings to the two casualties

The insurers can donate the unmarketable bits to local engineering schools.
