Air bridge collapse at Dublin rips door off 787

An investigation is underway at Dublin Airport in to how an air bridge collapsed at Terminal 2 ripping off a door of an American Airlines Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

The incident occurred on Sunday when the aircraft was being made ready to head to Philadelphia. The just was just under eight years old, having arrived at American Airlines in December 2015. 

That's gonna be a hefty bill for someone to pay.  The airport says it was probably a malfunction that caused the air bridge to collapse and apparently nobody was on it at the time. It is unclear if the airport is checking other air bridges for possible faults.
