A vintage Gulfstream jet collided with a fuel truck at Boeing Field Thursday evening, pinning the driver for more than an hour and causing a substantial fuel spill. Thankfully, the truck driver was removed with apparently non-life-threatening injuries.

This is obviously the fault of the driver of the fuel truck. I know it is harsh to throw out blame so quickly, but the fuel trucks are supposed to give the right of way to any aircraft moving on the taxi ways, or moving.... The man is lucky to be alive.

Story from the Seattle Times updated less than an hour ago:

If the driver was at the wheel when the accident happened, it looks like he's pretty lucky to be OK. Aircraft involved is N706TJ and it would seem its first photo in the a.net database is an unfortunate one...

That really is an old gulfstream. Still has the organ pipe exhaust.

Good to hear the driver was ok, though it would seem as if the wingtip tank would've hit him right in the face

apparently the Gulfstream made a U-Turn without informing the tower ... and hit the fuel truck ... not the other way around

You should work for the NTSB! Why spend months on an accident investigation when you can complete it in seconds?



You know the gear is up and locked when it takes full throttle to taxi to the terminal.
