How do I push from this gate?

What’s the best way to pushback from this gate?

I’m not sure how the real flight did it but it looks like they pushed back normally however there doesn’t seem to be enough space in IF:

Hmm. It looked like it stopped just after pivoting right out of the gate. I think generally if your tail is clear to the aft and right of your camera’s perspective, you could stick your tail in there just a little and turn towards the taxiway line.

If there was some planes parked there, I would recommend keeping a close eye on them if you plan to use the same maneuver.

But then I would hit the plane which is in the gate next to me

Not if you move a little left coming out of the gate before the pivot.

Most likely a pull truck pulls or towards in real life.
