Didn't they teach them in flying school that you have to walk around the aircraft to make sure the children are not playing in the driveway?

I think they should've gotten some free fuel to smoothen things over...

At least it's a good thing that nobody got hurt.

Shouldn't it be policy for all planes to have rear view camera's? I know the 773 and 345-346 need them because of their size. But collisions between service trucks and aircraft seem to be happening everyday. It doesn't appear wing walkers are the answer either!!!

MQ does not operate heavies so the rear view camera is not really necessary. Anyone know what type of aircraft it was?
