Deplaning didn't go smoothly Tuesday morning for an American 777.
Apparently, an American Airlines flight arriving at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport lost its door in a Terminal D jetbridge.
The aircraft pulled up to the terminal around 6:20 a.m. and docked with the jetbridge. Flight attendants opened the door to start letting passengers off the plane.
However, it appears that the brakes either failed or were not set and ground crews did not put blocks around the wheels as the plane rolled backwards about 200 feet, ripping the door off the Boeing 777.
I'm still waiting for a callback from American Airlines about the incident. But the photos, which the Star-Telegram received from a reader, pretty much tell the story.
UPDATE 6/17: Here are two statements from American about the 777 incident and an account from a crew chief working on Tuesday morning.
