JetBlue A321 Hit By Tug
JetBlue Flight 534, originally scheduled to depart for Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) at 1:40 PM local time, experienced the delay due to the damage sustained by the airline’s Airbus A321 in the incident. As a result, the flight eventually departed from SFO at 12:22 AM local time, as recorded by Flightradar24.com.
JetBlue has temporarily taken its A321 jet out of service for inspection, and the full extent of the damage to the aircraft is currently unknown.
According to Flightradar24.com data, JetBlue substituted the damaged A321 with its Airbus A320 aircraft, registered as N638JB. There is a video posted by a traveler on X, formerly known as Twitter, that shows the damaged JetBlue aircraft.
From San Francisco International Airport (SFO), the New York-based airline operates nonstop flights to various destinations, including Boston (BOS), New York (JFK), Newark (EWR), Los Angeles (LAX), Hartford (BDL), Fort Lauderdale (FLL), and Cancun (CUN).
Last Month, the JetBlue Airways (B6) Airbus A321 was stationary at New York JFK airport in the United States, having recently landed from Bridgetown, Barbados, operating as flight B6662, when a major mishap occurred, causing the aircraft to tip backward.
The aircraft involved in the incident is Airbus A321-200, which has the registration N959JB. Further, it is a 7.9-year-old aircraft and is powered by two IAE Engines.
It is suspected that a combination of unloading cargo from the front of the aircraft and an excess of passengers situated toward the rear may have led to the tail tipping reported Aviation24.be.
