Freight lorry hits mail plane
Tuesday 23rd April 2013, 8:30AM BST.
INVESTIGATIONS are under way after a freight lorry collided with the wing of the mail plane yesterday.
The Airport Services vehicle became wedged underneath the Atlantic Airlines aircraft at 7.25am.
It meant the aircraft, which was parked on its stand at the time of the incident, was unable to travel back to the UK.
Airport director Colin Le Ray said the matter had been reported and was being looked into.
‘Engineers are looking at the best way to remove the vehicle,’ he said.
