On the plus side that looks like the damage was to a replaceable panel to my uneducated eye...obviously it's more than possible there is other un-seen damage
Must think up a new one soon, slow moving brain trying to get into gear ;)

I don't see any fuselage gash, just a damaged wing to body fairing.. pop a few fasteners, drop the damaged section, slip on a new one and paint to match.. no biggie.

That's definitely not going to buff out and someone with that contractor is probably going for a wizz quiz....

While it looks like it will be a simply panel replacement, they're not going to simply put a new panel on (assuming that's an item commonly kept in stock by Delta TechOps at JFK) and will warrant closer inspection before putting the plane back into service.

I can deal with the perimeter breach, but that driver hurt a Delta 737 and that, my friends, is unforgiveable!

Assuming that it didn't cause any damage to the holes that the fasteners rest in.

And other statements above...

But, it will _definately_ max out the MasterCard/Visa (or any other favorite brand CC ) of the perimeter breaching escapee..

It is always fun to walk up to the person that damages expensive equipment and ask for their credit card to offset the cost of repairing/replacing the damaged area/component/etc..

That person is unrelated to the damaged DL a/c.

Umm the two incidents are not related...

"In the morning, a large container used by laundry/cleaning company DGS struck a Delta 737 parked at Terminal 4′s gate B37. The strike left a sizable gash in the aircraft’s belly just rear of the wing, forcing the aircraft out of service.

I don't see a 'gash'. All I see is a non-structural panel that's been knocked off. All in all, a pretty simple repair.

We do not know how badly the a/c is damaged. Can anyone confirm how bad the damage is???

Does anybody know the registration of the aircraft involved? I checked the registrations from Airfleets and compared them against flightaware and all -700s, -800s, and -900s appear to be operating as normal and the only ones that were on the ground at JFK this morning for an extended period of time were

N307DQ, which arrived from SAT at 12:14pm into B20, and left for BOG at 5:20pm from B20 (incident was at B37).
N303DQ, which arrived last night and went to B39 and left this morning at 9:06AM for AUA out of B24
N309DE, which arrived at 5:00AM from BOG into B41 and left at 8:54AM for SXM from B41.

But, we can tell it was an -800 involved by the two overwing exits.

That's a bolt on fairing panel. the fuselage is the green area underneath. they'll have to drill up the new panel and install it.

A wing body fairing is not a part Delta or any other airline would typically have in stock at a MX depot. They might be able pull a temp replacement from a aircraft in heavy maintance, but Boeing would have have a part like that ready for rapid AOG shipment. Here at FLL Embraer has an AOG depot and we get some pretty unexpected items for shipment. Flaps, cowls, even got a rudder once.

Ref: Reply(s) 8 and 9 above.

Thanks both of you for straightening me out.
I must have had a momentary memory disconnection not connecting the collision of the container and the aircraft.

But when rereading the article, I was reminded when I got the call after a freight container was blown against the side of a wing mounted engine tailpipe at a South American station. That damage to the side of the tailpipe also damaged the tailpipe internal acoustic liner and the tailpipe assembly had to be replaced with a loaner assembly. That damage also would not buff out. I never did get the responsible persons M.C. or Visa number.

Wtf was a laundry truck doing driving that close between the wing and fuselage of an aircraft?!?!? Like others have said good thing it appears the damage may have been just to that fairing panel.
