Cargo Plane Ground Collision At Boeing Field Surprises 747-8I Revelers
Eyewitnesses reported hearing the Convair’s engines running at high RPM followed by the sound of a collision. They looked across the ramp where they saw puffs of white smoke rising from the aircraft, likely from the engine.
This marks the second accident at Boeing Field in the past eight days, both involving Ameriflight. On March 11th, an Ameriflight cargo plane landed with its gear up, temporarily closed the airport’s longest runway.
NYCAviation correspondents Brandon Farris and Tad Carlson, on hand to cover the Boeing event, were able to snap these photos.
