Thomas Cook B753 Damaged In Lyon?

Thu Feb 05, 2004 7:51 pm

I have recently heard that a Thomas Cook Airlines Boeing 757-300 (G-JMAB) has been damaged in Lyon after it skidded on an icey taxiway and is going to be grounded for approx 3 months. Does anyone know any more or know of any pics?

Apparently it was cleared to pass through a certain gap by ATC which was too narrow and it hit a lamp post.

Thomas Cook 757-300 G-JMAB has damaged its wingtip after colliding with a lamp post at Lyon Satolas airport on Saturday 24th January. It will likely take 2 months to repair the damage.

There was a photo of it on justplanes.com but it has disappeared.

I guess that Thomas Cook will be quite glad to be able to have a plane less to plan into their operations for the time to come...
Or is it only the German Thomas Koch that is causing all the trouble?

I've seen a picture of it and linked it on our Hong Kong spotting forum (which for some reason will not work right now!!)

It looked like the whole end was missing not just the leading edge smashed in.

I know this will sound a bit daft but... who foots the bill for the repair? Of course airlines have insurance, but do the airline pay for the repair or will an insurance company pay like they would if you crashed your car?
