Fuel truck collides with two American Eagle aircraft at Dallas

An investigation is underway at Dallas Fort Worth Airport after a fuel tanker collided with not one, but two American Eagle Bombardier CRJ900 aircraft on Monday.

The fuel truck appears to have first struck the wing of  N915FJ, belonging to Mesa, operating under the American Eagle brand which had recently arrived from McAllen.  Photos and videos from the scene show the wingtip significantly damaged by contact from the truck.  Whilst full details of the accident have not yet been released, it looks as if the fuel truck then came to rest after impaling the cab on the wing of another Bombardier CRJ900 aircraft, registration N945LR, which had just come from Albuquerque.

A spokesperson for American Airlines said: “On Monday morning at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), a vendor’s fuelling truck impacted two parked Bombardier CRJ-900 aircraft. No passengers or crew members were seriously injured. American is reviewing the incident in coordination with the vendor.”
