2 United Birds Clip Their Wings


Apr 26, 2005
There is no excuse for this. This is why we all are suppose to have "wing walkers".
I clicked on photos and zoomed in and found a huge overlap of the larger birds wing. What were these guys thinking? My only thought is maybe they thought the larger a/c wing would clear over the winglet. Again where were the extra set of eyes especially when so close to other a/c and or structures.

Quality reporting comparing a runway incursion to clipping a winglet taxiing in the gate area...
Yes, we all know, this incident in article posted, was indeed at the gate areas, which is why I ask again, where were the wing walkers or extra set of eyes when so close to other a/c???
