Incident at ST. JOHN'S INTL NL (CYYT)


2003-09-03: Update - Aerodrome Safety - 2003-09-02 - Preliminary investigation into this incident indicates that the Vehicle driver made an error in relation to aircraft identification. The Driver mistakenly identified the A321 as a B767 and drove slowly under the wing, hence the minor damage. The investigation into the incident is ongoing however no deviation from Airport Safety Plan or AVOP is attributed to the driver. The aircraft wings did not have cones in place and may not be required. The procedure is ok for the 767 and approved by the company. The truck was designed for the purpose of under wing on B767 aircraft. As a follow up the carrier will be asked to use florescent cones under the wings of aircraft. Other aircraft types do as a mater of safety use the cones.
