The pilot said something like "Airbus, Boeing, blah! It's Ilyushin all the way!" and in his drunken protest, the catering truck driver (who was eaither a Boeing or Airbus employ) said "Take this!" and rammed the plane with his truck. No, he wasn't strung up by the balls, but the pilot walked out, grabbed him by his belt, said "Siempre viva Castro!!!" and tossed him into the #2 engine. Well, it could have happened that way...

Probably rammed by one of the radical Cuban expatriots. As Hoffa mentioned, he was probably not prosecuted. He may well have benn given the job of security chief at the airport. In South Florida, Bautista still rules. Forget the fact that Castro has killed and jailed far fewer dissidents.
I am glad I was around to fly before de-regulation.

It doesn't matter if the factories are now in Russia, or Kazakhstan, or Uzbekistan, or Ukraine; the Il-62 is a Soviet aircraft.
The only Russian aircraft designed (in service) in the last 50 years is the Tu-214.
The rest are of Soviet design (i.e. all 15 Soviet republics participated in their design and manufacture).
As to Antonov, yes, they may now be a Ukrainian OKB, but they have yet to produce an aircraft whilst it has been wholly Ukrainian. I pull up members here all the time who say that Antonov is Ukrainian, not Russian, with "sorry, but the An-124 and An-225 are SOVIET aircraft". The country of Ukraine has only existed since 1991 (when the Soviet Union disintegrated) (and at least in modern times).
Anyway, if anyone has info on the above incident, please let us know, as someone has to know about it.

ref your question:
1. Airline is filling the form about ground incident, handling company is signing it. Then airline forwarding it to insurance company, who pays for repair and after that insurance company claims money from ground hanling company. Ofcourse, handling company also claiming their insurance company to pay these expenses
2. On Cubana or Aeroflot aircraft.
