    Hope that guy can prove there were air bubbles in the brake fluid lines!
  3. 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...

    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 least here.
