Anyone care to explain how the nose gear is turned to the left as aircraft pivots left?

It's a free rolling thing. Turns to the least drag direction.

From that video it just appears to weathercock 90 degrees ante clockwise but does not have any contact with the other plane in the video. It would have to go upwind to do that!

Obviously the low pressure region downwind of the upwind aircraft sucked the downwind aircraft into a false sense of security in the wind shadow of the upwind aircraft.
Simples.

The aircraft definitely struck each other. And it did go up wind.




The only saving grace is that it looks like it struck the cargo door.

Simples.

Or the ramp slopes away in that direction and it simply started rolling downhill?
