  • Pickup Truck Hits Southwest Arilines Plane, Gets Stuck Under Aircraft

News outlets in Tennessee cite a statement from the airline that says the Monday night flight was redirected to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport because a cockpit instrument indicated one of the flaps might not have fully extended.

An ambulance attended the scene but there were no reported injuries.

Southwest Flight 6263 was arriving from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, a little after 1:30 a.m. when the accident happened. The condition of the truck's operator is unclear.

The airline says they worked quickly to accommodate the 103 passengers to make sure they wouldn't be further delayed and offered "a gesture of goodwill" for the inconvenience.

Southwest Airlines has not released any comment but the company did respond to a tweet from one of the passengers on the plane. Lauderdale to Baltimore was pulling into the gate at Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI) when a ground vehicle came into contact with the aircraft.

The cause of the collision is not known, but the FAA will investigate, it said. We'll do our best to get you going ASAP, Michael!
