NWA DC-9 Damaged At MSP Today?

Wed May 02, 2001 11:08 am

I just caught a glimpse shot on news of NWA DC-9 being pulling into taxiway with nose smashed up during fast moving thunderstorm. Do anyone know this report?

we had quite a hailstorm here at 5:30 pm local time. But I didn't hear of damage
to any planes...maybe it was minor.

Not thunderstorm-related, just common ramp rash. Pushback tug (for some reason) hit the nose of the aircraft. A couple of minor injuries to employees, none to passengers...
