yep herd about it I thought it was there Australia company Virgin Australia but they only have B777'S A330'S B738,B737-700 ATR'S BOMBARDIER A/C
Why not install sensors on wing tips? It must be a reason why right?
Not sure if the fault is with the ground crew (tug driver and wingmen) or the flight crew who probably had a tough time seeing the wing tips. A340 I think from FA info on this flight number.

If it was the tug then the flight crew is along for the ride until unhooked. As far as the wag above this post think he needs to get a grip on how AC are handled and how they clear or are supposed to clear things.
This is another incident with a Virgin aircraft the last was the B744 came down with a collapsed undercarrige what about the altimeters and GPWS this would have also triggered this to show the A330 was to low

Don't see anything to indicate on the above story that would suggest it was ever in the air.
