On 1 September 1998, a Sabena Airbus A330-301 was being towed from a gate to a maintenance facility at Brussels Airport when the driver of the TUG lost directional control on the slippery ground surface. The aircraft slid out of control and impacted a Sobelair Boeing 737-329, puncturing a large hole in the fuselage of the 737. Both aircraft were repaired and subsequently returned to service.

  1. I remember!
    The aircraft was not towed and had to move from maintenance to a terminal’s gate on it’s own engines.
    Then it happened!
    I led the investigation of the incident at that time!

  2. Oui, j’ai été un des inspectorats d’investigation.
    Une erreur d’himain,
