What Damaged This MYT/SSV A320?

Tue May 30, 2006 1:20 am

I knew that C-GTDL (now G-GTDL), was damaged by ground equipment at MAN on 3 May 2006, just been looking through the database and found this picture:

Its on tow into the MyTravel hangar to have the hole patched up, what I would like to know is what hit it? Its not steps, as its no where near the door!

Its out of service for a month and a half for repair. Doesn't seem to be affecting MYT's performance, with an aircraft down.

That is a very good question. Even just by judging the square hole it seems strange. I don't know any vehicle on the airport which would fit to the hole. The hole is also situated pretty high. So  Confused  Confused
