Yesterday, a refueling truck rammed a wing of an IB MD-88 at Santiago de Compostela (SCQ, Galicia, Spain). No injuries. The truck cabin demolished and the MD-88 will be probably scraped. Sorry, but the link only in Spanish.

It's a pity. Those smooth MDs are disappearing slowly. I love them. Please, Boeing, bring back somehow the 717. Best regards

No spillage but the fire brigade used foam, just in case, and the plane was towed far from the terminal. Regards

I was wondering who would be held accountable for an incident like this. I am sure that the driver "might" loose his/her job though would insurance kick in and pay for the damaged aircraft. Or would the operating company/airport be held accountable for the damage caused?

This is the second IB M88 damaged this year, the other is stored at MAD still unrepaired.

might, may... i'd say WILL

i'm sure the insurance will pay for the plane unless negligence can be proof (excess of job hours, drunk driver...)

Good money for IB... even better because the MD's are planed to leave IB's fleet and be replaced by airbuses

What a great way to "write off" an aircraft you where planning to get rid off any way! Pay a drive $3000 (e.g.) get him to run into an aircraft, and then sue the ground handlers!

Does anybody know the registration. I have just flown on FOF and FPJ recently. Would be weird (for me) if it was one of those. While it is too bad the md88's are leaving, it appeared to me IB is anticipating their departure, because the inside of the planes looked horrible (especially FOF) with terribly worn seats and stuff.
