What an idiot. He posted the same thing on the other big message board, and then changed it to "incident" after everyone yelled at him. I bet he isn;t really a brown tail, either. Those guys have a lot more professionalism and maturity.

Maybe brown nose would be more appropriate.

Nope - "Idiot" is more appropriate.

I was jumpseating out of MSP today, and as we were headed to the deice pad, we held short as they towed the FDX plane right in front of us. There didn't appear to be any damage from what we could tell.

I was on the MSP ramp last night and walked around the Bus. No damage to speak of. I also talked to a ramp agent who said when the autobrakes engaged, one truck was on black ice and the plane vered the opposite way.

As soon as I saw that it was a 300, I knew there was no problem. The Exers only seem to have a propensity to dump 3-holers...727 bath at PNS, and widebody slow rolls at EWR and (I think) MEM.
