Does anyone know the circumstances behind the write-off of a Continental 727-243A N571PE that struck the terminal at EWR on June 7, 1997? What happened, damage, etc???

(I know about the incident with a CO MD-80 a couple of years later, this appears to be a different incident).

A MX taxi over to another gate. They did not follow procedure with regards to the Hydraulic system set-up on the flight eng. panel. I don't remember which system they lost, but they did and with it their brakes. Well the rest you must know; into the building they went. Both guys were hurt, and the airplane was a write-off.

Now we have all airplanes in EWR moved by "Super-tugs."

The aircraft was being taxied from a maintenance hangar to the terminal prior to a flight when the maintenance crew lost control, overshot the jetway, and the aircraft impacted the USAir terminal. Two of the crew were seriously injured, but survived the incident.

 Big thumbs up
