Tug crushes into Lufthansa plane in Perm

A criminal suit might follow the recent tug crushing into Lufthansa-owned airplane in Perm airport, Ural public prosecution authorities for transportation report.

While Airbus A321-200 was getting ready to take off in Perm’s Bolshoye Savino Airport on February 26, 2011, a tug crushed into it, damaging the metallic fixtures that attached the tug to the plane. There were forty-three passengers and seven crew members aboard the plane. An investigative team and Perm’s public prosecutor for transportation Sergey Zabelov inspected the scene of the accident shortly afterwards.
