Default Broken Wings: [Aviation, not politics] Trump Force One Clips Parked Jet

Trump’s Boeing 757 clipped parked plane after landing at Florida airport Sunday, FAA says
Published Tue, May 14 20249:09 PM EDTUpdated Moments Ago


The wing of a Boeing 757 jet owned by former President Donald Trump struck a parked plane at a Florida airport after landing safely and taxiing early Sunday morning, the Federal Aviation Administration said.
It is not known if Trump, who had held a campaign rally in Wildwood, New Jersey, on Saturday, was on his aircraft when its winglet struck the rear elevator of a parked VistaJet in West Palm Beach.
No injuries were reported in the collision.
Trump, who is the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, is on trial in New York in a criminal hush money case involving a 2016 election year payout to Stormy Daniels.

The plane of former US president Donald Trump takes off from Palm Beach International Airport in West Palm Beach, Florida, on April 3, 2023.

Florida drivers.....what are ya gonna do?

Pretty certain felony charges will be filed against TRUMP, slew will start a thread to endorse the filings.

NOT POLITICAL, this is for us avaiation enthusiasts.

I wonder if Florida's "no fault insurance" applies to planes as well?

Happened in Florida, but Bragg will indict him in New York on a violation of campaign finance law. This accident gives Trump more publicity so Bragg thinks he's campaigning illegally. The judge will fine him for violating the gag order.

They are lucky that I’m not Trump because if so there’d be a whole lot more wings being clipped. If you know what I mean.

Unlike John Travolta and Harrison Ford, Trump doesn't pilot his own planes.
Ford has had several violations, like landing on a taxiway, etc...
Having worked around aircraft on the flight line for Navy fighter jets, I can tell you that this is minor stuff and the pilot may have been following ground crew directions anyway.

I'd fill football stadiums with useless federal workers for a special announcement, make them wait at least an hour before I'd arrive on the big screen and say two words.
