    Sounds like a wing walker is getting/got fired

    I am awestruck by the brilliant journalism here ...

    "No injuries were reported and officials at O'Hare said the incident is not affecting air travel general air travel, though the flights involving the two aircraft are affected."

    They ignored the pauli exclusion principle because they were both rightside up? o_O:dunno:

    What did they think was going to happen with 2 planes on the TARMAC????
    Did they check for injuries at the nearby schools?

    The Pauli Exclusion principle only applies to fermions (particles with half integer spin). These planes were on the ground and weren't in any sort of spin- they have to be stalled to spin, and you can't stall a plane on the ground. Therefore, the Pauli exclusion principle doesn't apply.:goofy::idea::loco:

    Two solid objects can’t occupy the same space at the same time.

    Not if he was signalling the tug driver to stop and the tug driver wasn't paying attention. Seen that.

    No, because their fans were all turning in the same direction.

    According to the article, “Both planes sustained left wing damage.” Did one of the planes back into its gate?

    Think about it again. They often push back and pull them out of the hole. Very tight at some of O’Hare gates.

    Should have asked for ground following instead of flight following.

    Cheers

    The newsies love to use the word "tarmac" as if it is a place on an airport. They prove once again that they have no idea what they are reporting on, but want you to think they are experts and you should listen to them.
