Southwest, the blue one with the heart, it’s “the original” American low-cost carrier and arguably their best. However, yesterday the wind of the extreme wind got the better of one of their 737’s.
The aircraft, who was sitting at Bostan Logan Airport, Massachusetts overnight was forced into the aerobridge after 125km/h winds pushed the jetliner forward. No one was on board at the time and only the wing made contact with the jetbridge. What’s interesting is, Southwest is refusing to say if the aircraft was damaged or not, from photos, it looks like the jetbridge has scraped the wing of the aircraft. Due to the strong winds, a roof of a Delta hanger at the airport was also blown off. The aircraft’s flights were cancelled and as far as we know it remains in Boston with engineers.
