Hope that guy can prove there were air bubbles in the brake fluid lines!
We had a guy hit the plane and he's still working ten years later.
Really? I would think that would be automatic death sentence to a career at UPS.
My father in-law is in the Guard and assigned to the maintenance company for AH-64D Longbow Apaches. Apparently, you're supposed to "ground" the birds before hooking up electricity for maintenance. A guy in his unit failed to do so, and managed to do $750k worth of damage to one aircraft.
That guy still works there...

No he still keeps on plugging.
Well, glad for him. Just learn what that horizontal pedal on the left is for!
Plane didn't have height clearance posted on it, planes fault.
FTR, those in the truck weren't UPS employees, but work for a contracted cleaning service. UPS wouldn't fire them, just the company they work for. (On a related note, do all gateway operations use retired 500-series cars as crew vans, as they do at PHL? That was my first clue that those who hit the plane weren't UPS employees. )
Cardinal infractions are death-dealers; all else is negotiable....at least here.
"Tattoo, what kind of doughnut do you want"?
Stuff happens. When I was military I hit a forklift with a fuel truck. Ooops.
Better than the other way around. That could have gone boom.
It was only diesel fuel but, yeah, it could have been much worse.
Did you get sent to the Eastern Front?
I got promoted.

I thought you were Air Force.
That appears to be true at Boeing Field.
Retired P800s in my neck of the woods.
Just like UPS!
