Ryanair said in a statement: 'Two of our aircraft were taxiing slowly to the runway at Dublin Airport this morning.
Well a first time for everything I suppose

I like the quote from the Ryanair statement:

"There was no impact on customers on board
So presumably both flights arrived at their destinations on time then!

If I try to visualise the amount of force it took to shear the wingtip off like that, along with what I've experienced re Ryanair taxiing at DUB, then I agree with the eyewitness account that one plane was not going "slowly".

60 ton aeroplane, plastic winglet. You could do that at 1 kt. That damage is not evidence of speed.

Was it "foggy" in DUB this am ?

Reason for delay on RYR interweb page..... "Change Of Aircraft".

What to do with this throw away culture, I do not know.

They will never learn while they maintain the expectation to rush when on the ground in order to achieve OTP.

RYR press release :
"Both aircraft were under the instruction of Dublin Airport Air Traffic Control at the time.
and trying, at least for the mind of the uninformed, to divert the blame to ATC!

If I was working in Dublin ground, from now I know what I would do

Maximum speed on the apron is 15 kts, where did you get the 30 kts from?

From the Beeb:
It is understood tenders from Dublin Fire Brigade were sent to the airport as a precautionary measure.
Obviously it was no big deal if DUB ARFF couldn't be bothered...

In the UK certain categories of emergency response always require an outside presence as well as the resident force.


Whether this fell within one of those I wouldn't know.

Well, with one of the largest fleets in Europe and a vast amount of sectors flown every day as an airline then statistically this 'outfit' will have a larger amount of mishaps. Per sectors flown I do not have any concerns about FR's number of mishaps.

Ryanair is an incredibly safe/unsafe airline. I love/hate them. Their pilots are wonderful/awful.
End of thread.

Ryanair jet has top of wing ripped off after planes collide at Dublin Airport | Daily Mail Online

or alternatively from the print version the headline re the event " Passengers in runway terror"

But I do like the cartoon.

Looks like one of them was trying to make a slot.
