Earlier in the month an American Airlines aircraft maintenance technician died while on the job at Dallas/Ft. Worth Airport. The technician, who had been at American for 30 years, fell 14 feet from a jet bridge while closing the door of a Boeing 767. He suffered fatal injuries from the fall.
It’s such a terribly sad story. Nowadays we take aviation safety for granted, especially on the ground, so it’s heartbreaking when things like this happen.
The beautiful thing is the tribute he got when his body was sent to Cleveland, where his family is from. Here’s the video:
Very touching, and my thoughts are with his family and friends.
