I say all of the above. He'll definately get an ass kicking for that. I wouldn't be suprised if he got fired for the stupid move he made. I don't think that pilot will be flying for UA any time soon.

The damage on the wing and winglet of the 744 is likely to have costed around $900,000 or more (USD). Looking back to a photo of an Air Canada 744 winglet detached from C-GMWW I made an assumption from that. Take a look for yourself...

I remember, on this web site, one of the more respected users said most pilots who get fired get fired for what they do on the ground as opposed to what they do in the air. Meaning the airlines are less forgiving for taxi screw ups

Makes sense...I mean, if you can't control the aircraft in 2 dimensions, why risk 3?

This report has been out for a long time.

I dont think it is anything new.

Depends, if this is his first offence. Since it was only bent metal, and no lives were lost, he will go back to DEN get through training and a stern talking to and then be released back to the line.

If this is the pilot's second offence, he's gone.



What is it? It's A 747-400, but that's not important right now.

i think he should just get a good suspension. even though no one got hurt, it still could of hurt someone on the ground, not saying theres someone walking on the taxiway, but ya. he should just thru training again and have a good talk with the head trainer in DEN.
