Aircraft hits fire truck in Tampa during water cannon salute!

Posted June 4th, 2014 @ 5:35am

Well, it was a nice idea to welcome the first 787 Dreamliner to the Tampa Airport - except one of the two fire trucks parked too close and hit the starboard (right) wing of the aircraft! It was Japan Airlines first flight and the first time a Boeing 787 Dreamliner arrived at the Tampa Airport and thanks to the fire department, it stayed longer than scheduled as the maintenance crews worked to repair the damage.
