This MD-80 rolled into a terminal building at EWR...the mechanics were working on it and if I got the story right, forgot to set the brakes...it rolled right into the gate area where passengers were...there are pics of the nose sitting next to the gate podium. That's the most I can tell ya.

Care to elaborate, Spark? Anyway, stupid stuff like hitting buildings and lamp standards happens pretty often there was a similar incident with a SAS/SweLink Saab 2000 a couple years ago at Arlanda...here is the pic

Wasn't there also an incident similar to this involving a NW A320 at LAS? If I remember correctly, the mechanics forgot to set the brake and it rolled backwards, taking down a lamp post, fence, and seriously damaging itself..
