A NEW three-month-old Boeing 777 damaged due to a ground mishap
A brand new KLM Boeing 777-300ER sustained damage at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport following a push back mishap.
The damage occurred as pushback was commenced without the jet bridge properly removed from the aircraft.
“On April 22, a Boeing 777 aircraft hit the bridge during pushback, which was in too low a position due to a malfunction. This caused minor damage to the wing of the aircraft. This damage is now being repaired.” – KLM Spokesperson
The 777, registration, PH-BVV only has only logged 80 flight hours in 14 flights and it’s the first of the two new 777‘s the airline has received.
