Just in, a surprising incident at JFK airport has caught the attention of aviation enthusiasts and travelers alike. Thanks to @xJonNYC, we’ve got a glimpse of the startling situation. Here’s what we know so far.
Aircraft Information: The aircraft in question appears to be a JetBlue Airways Airbus A321, with the tail number N959JB. It had recently arrived from Bridgetown, Barbados (BGI).
The Incident: What makes this situation intriguing is that the aircraft appears to have tipped backward while at the gate. This type of incident is relatively rare, and is sure to raise questions about what caused it. One possibility is that the center of gravity shifted to the aft, causing the aircraft to tilt. While the A321 rarely tips backwards like this, this issue is significantly more common with the Boeing 737-900, prompting the use of tail stands to prevent an incident like this.
Passenger Situation: As of now, it’s unclear whether passengers were still on board the aircraft or if deboarding was in progress at the time of the incident. Fortunately, it doesn’t sound like there were any reported injuries, but we’ll have to wait for more information to confirm for sure.
Ongoing Investigation: Many details surrounding this incident remain unclear, and it’s essential to exercise caution before jumping to conclusions. The FAA will undoubtedly conduct a thorough investigation to determine the cause and prevent such occurrences in the future.
Stay tuned for updates on this intriguing event.
