United Flight Backs Into Fuel Truck At LaGuardia
Local media reports that a United flight backed into a fuel truck, presumably the truck that had just refueled the aircraft, earlier this morning.
United Airlines Flight 1561, which was scheduled to fly from LaGuardia to Denver, clipped the fuel truck as it was pushing back for departure.
United Airlines has confirmed that the damage to the aircraft was minor and that no passenger was injured. The airline was able to move the passengers to another plane and fly to Denver as originally scheduled.
This is the second such incident this week at LaGuardia, after earlier this week, and two American Airlines flights clipped each other.
