Silly question one of the photos shows a Tow Bar at the front, if they were using a conventional tug during push back and the nose span would not the tug been span too? OR do they use TBLs which would mean the nose wheel was not correctly secured in the Crandall so was free to spin. OR like LHR T5 do they use Mototok tugs as have seen this happen on a number of occasions.

Reading the FT thread seems the pushback bar snapped and the tug driver couldn’t or didn’t respond quickly enough before contacting the NLG with the tug
Must think up a new one soon, slow moving brain trying to get into gear ;)
