    I have a feeling it got pushed back into something.

    Edit: Bell206 beat me to it.

    Or there was something behind the plane that it was pushed into.

    What was a dump truck doing driving around an airport ramp? Me thinks there’s a lot more to this story.

    You are thinking in the wrong direction. The plane was at the yard picking up a load of gravel to help smooth out the runway. The incident happened because the plane did not have one of those super annoying back up alarms....

    Everyone always claims a Saratoga is a flying truck....:lol:

    That increased the value 68 cents. It has 0 bids so far, makes me tempted to bid $1.99 just to get the ball rolling.
