Today I observed an AirWisconsin CRJ-200 (N432AW) sitting at the "B" gates in LGA with its tail cone missing and a cloth draped around it. Underneath sat a large pool of liquid and the engines were covered. Does anyone know what happened to this airplane? Also, how come it was still at a gate and not moved to another area of the airport?
Please direct your attention to the flight attendants in the cabin...

Happened a few days ago. It was struck during the push from gate 6 (I believe) on the US Airways terminal by a Delta tug. Quite hard, apparently, judging from the pictures I've seen. There is a roadway that passes directly behind the gates at the very end of the terminal that is used by airport vehicles, and care is always taken to ensure that vehicles are stopped to allow pushes to continue. Not sure why it would be sitting over by the B gates now.
