    Memphis did it again, the hub that the rules don't apply off loaded a md11 with no nose tether and sent the nose sky high. Going from Memphis to Denver flight 529 had to do a tail swap but didnt follow any of the rules and smashed a loader at the tail, lucky no one was killed this time but maybe a big fine from the FAA will help them get their act together.

    I guess you dont need to to a tether check when doing a tail swap in Memphis lol Memphis never follows their own rules.

    Oopsie. Someone's in deep doo doo. When I worked at a Ramp, no doors opened on the planes until the aircraft mechanics came out and hooked the nose to the nose tether.

    It's just gravity. Another law we can ignore just because we work for a $50 billion a year corporation.

    Short cuts are not only authorized, but strongly encouraged.

    Nice fail. Maybe that's why Fred is buying so many 767s. Tough to put one of those on it's tail.

    We're all about safety here at Express. Just like Ground. And, for the record, if someone had been killed, it would have been their fault for "not anticipating the hazard" of the aircraft standing on it's tail.

    cosmo1 Just another internet hooligan.

    Or, as we in brown say, not expecting the unexpected.

    Fred stole all his ideas from UPS. He just changed the wording. Same meaning...it's always the fault of the employee.
