-From the looks of things...the guy in the cockpit either wasn´t sittin´in the captain´s seat,had no hydraulic pressure left,walked around in the cabin prowling for leftover snacks or other stuff...or the tugdriver didn´t adjust his speed prior to the turn givin´the poor guy upstairs littl´or no time at all to react.....anyone of those things...or :
-They simply didn´t have a guy in the a/c.......shame on them...
-Here at ARN
the only time we´re not havin´a guy in the a/c is when we use our Goldhofer TBL´s..
-As soon as we´re using a regular towtruck and towbar,regulations clearly states that someone has to sit in the cockpit during tow op´s.
-Furthermore,even if we use our TBL´s..come darkness,regulations also states that a guy´s needed upstairs thanx to the fact that we tow with the a/c´s lights on and since our TBL´s not equipped with a GPU..the APU has to be used for lights & pumps.
