That definitely won’t buff out.
No, it probably wouldn't buff out, but a quick coat of automotive filler and a rattle can, and no one would be the wiser. Probably could have gone unnoticed

I can’t believe it took this long to make it to avcanada.

Gotta say I'm impressed by the strength of the A320's vertical stabilizer. But yeah, someone's getting canned over this - good thing they're just a minimum wage lackey.

Curious how it happened. Was the airbus parked in a wrong spot, did the boeing tower tow off the line, was the tow route not suitable for a 777, ...

As an AvCanada discussion grows longer:
-the probability of 'entitlement' being mentioned, approaches 1
-one will be accused of using bad airmanship

I would figure they'd be on line. That parts not difficult with those tugs. Ground didn't look snow covered hiding it. Wrong line maybe. I think 40/60 between unsuitable route and Airbus not parked all the way up the line fully.(maybe obscured when it was parked?)

Core, that's completely unacceptable on here. Take a couple of weeks to think about that, please.
If it happens again, it will be permanent.

Seagull, Somalia is a Country not a race !
Nice try :roll:
Doesn't remove the fact that your initial post had (heavy) racial connotation.


Back on topic, it's like they drive their tow trucks eyes closed sometime.

Amazing.

Tow driver is not an entry level job. Therefore your racist comment doesn’t hold true. Someone off the plane would start off as a baggage handler, if anything.

Perhaps the slowest aircraft crash in recent history? I wonder if Marijuana was to blame :lol:
