Two American Eagle flights had to be cancelled when the Bombardier CR-9 regional jets operated by Mesa Airlines were hit by a fuel truck this morning while preparing for departure at the Dallas Fort-Worth B terminal. One aircraft was headed to McAllen, Texas, while the other one was about to head to Albuquerque.
The truck, owned by Allied Aviation, destroyed a winglet and damaged part of a wing on one American Eagle jet before driving directly into the wing of a second American Eagle aircraft parked at the neighboring gate.
The wing of the second aircraft penetrated the windshield of the truck, according to video obtained by WFAA.
Video of the incident is… just…
