From a while back at Glasgow, a taxying BAC1-11 sliced through the cab of a construction vehicle having failed to take a temporary taxi line. The driver of the truck was unhurt but a little twitchy no doubt ?

and he missed a Conrete lorry how?? Looks like it must have entered the cab just above bottom of windscreen. No doubt lorry driver had to get a new pair of pants!

Was the 1-11 under tow (a tow bar is visible on the nose gear) or was it taxiiing under its own power? Either way, Ouch.

I understand it was under it's own power, there's another shot of the passengers luggage being removed from the other side, presumably the tow bar had been brought in to move it from the scene.

Makes sense. Imagine the look on the passenger faces when they saw what was coming. :eek:
