I note the aircraft was being taxiied by a ground crew. I'll bet that will be a factor in this incident.

I think you are correct. Even pilots when we taxi take a peek at the FMS groundspeed especially in slippery conditions and the nose steering doesn’t work very well on wet painted lines when moving along a good clip. Of course it all assumes wet or damp conditions coupled with taxi speed and functioning steering? We will find out in the report.

Long ago,two Jetstars met the parts counter in the DFW area when inexperienced ground crew/mechs. that didn't know the hydraulic system/brakes interface and chocks, fired up the wrong motors first. One wound up in a ditch at ADS, the other in a restaurant at FTW.

I know, the Way back machine, but, the more things change the more they remain the same. MC/HNY

Torsten, I think you missed this one because it disappeared in the blink of an eye! Not characteristic of a DB Squawk, but a true tale of oh merd in my early days. I know you are a Mooney guy and probably know the flaw in the baggage door/escape hatch story. It became an SB, not the AD it should have been. Cheers
