i think i've seen pictures like that before, where a door gets cut off by some piece of ground equipment, but i found the note about the fokker at the bottom of that article more interesting. when did the fokker run in to troubles?

Quoting September11 (Reply 1):

It was probably Door 2L. That is usually the door that UAL uses to board/deplane pax on the 772, unless of course the station has a dual jetway, in which case they would use Doors 1L and 2L.
