    Interesting video. Not quite sure who was at fault here......was it the pilot or the person who left that container or whatever it was so close to the taxiway?

          Wow! That's a rarely video it happened. I never seen like this before. Most video outside to see the plane something happened. That's a rarely inside passenger it happened. But I know TACA 767 landing overshot in GUA. That's all I know.

            woops, were they taxi'ing to the runway or coming back? because it would have been interesting to hear the announcment. Plus did the plane get jolted up or did the guy get a fright?

                That's what happen when you put the parking area too close to the taxiway. Even if he parked a few feets outside the white lines, THAT is still too close to moving aircrafts. They should fire the idiot that planned the parking area too close to it.

                    The ones who should be blamed are the development planners !

                        take a look at this, it looks like that the pilot took a tad too wide turn to park on one of the remote stands, there is more room than you think

                            Yes, God knows what could have happen if a ramp rat, the driver or anyone else standing on the wrong side of the truck. *Splat*

                              Hi Guys, so, at which airport did this incident happen ?

                              OK, re watched the vid carefully - happened at Lusaka.....

                              Wow, methinks the pilot was a tad to close for comfort when taxing in to the ramp - yes, the truck was "over the line", but not by much from the scenes on the vid clip. One would have thought (famous 20/20 hindsight) that a "room for error" space is left when taxing - but then I'm not the pilot and i was not there.

                              Would love to have been a fly on the wall at the de-briefing.....
