On April 12, a car accidentally ended up stuck under a Ryanair plane after the handling agent failed to use the handbrake. According to Ryanair: “There were no passengers on board the aircraft and there were no injuries as a result of this incident, which is currently under investigation.”
The airline told Preferente: “Yesterday (12 April) there was a minor incident at Alicante airport, involving a parked Boeing 737-800 aircraft and a car belonging to a handling company.
“The handling agent left the handbrake of the parked vehicle off, and it rolled under the fuselage of a parked Ryanair Boeing 737-800 aircraft, causing some minor external damage.”
Ryanair went on to add: “The aircraft was immediately taken to our maintenance facility for overhaul. There were no passengers on board the aircraft and there were no injuries as a result of this incident, which is currently under investigation.”
One person took to Twitter to share photos of the surprising incident.
