When we had tug caused aircraft damage during a pushback a couple of years back, the airport authority came good for a large part of the damage cost. There were musings that in addition to two wing walkers we assigned, we should have assigned a tug walker too. I suggested that there would then be risk of the tug walker getting run over!

Shouldn't it read "was backed into" rather than "backed into"?

The fin may be relatively easy to replace (when they find one!) but the attachment points might be a tad stress loaded!

I wonder if we should leave a JAL or China Airlines shoddy repair warning comment for PPRuNe readers circa 2038(???)

According to The Times of Israel, the El Al 767 had pushed back and was stationary when the Germania 737 was pushed into it.

That's consistent with the photos. I would expect a different pattern of damage had the 737 been stationary and hit sideways by the 767 moving backwards.
