Fuel tank gets wedged under plane in Philadelphia

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A fuel tank somehow disconnected from its trailer hitch at Philadelphia International Airport, rolled onto the taxiway and got stuck under an airplane.

It happened at 10:30 a.m. Monday. Airport spokeswoman Victoria Lupica says it took about 10 minutes to get the wedged tanker out from under the US Airways plane.

Lupica says there was no fuel spill and no one was injured. She says the plane was towed back to the gate to be checked out and the passengers are being rebooked on other flights.

Lupica says the plane had been moving on the taxiway but may have been fully stopped when the tank rolled into it. It's not clear how the tank got unhooked from the truck.
