so often phone videos are this silly vertical format when landscape mode would be much better.

Opps someone was being a chock head today. Glad nobody was hurt thou but looking at the video why didnt the guys on the tug try to stop it since they were in front. Yes they would have had some damage but would have been safer i think.

The 777 wasn’t parked. It was being towed when the towbar disconnected. Should be a brake rider in the cockpit, maybe forgot to start the APU.

Hi, William. Where did you find that info? Just looking at the video I thought the tug was getting in position for heroics before getting out of the way.

Until 00:00:08 of the video it was being towed by the tug.

We must be watching different videos. At no point in the clip linked in the story above is the tug attached.

Good eye William. I think you are right on. It looks like the tow bar came adrift as they made their turn.

I'm guessing you just read the headline.

Common sense calls for the brakes to be locked and wheel chocks, but good OJT for ground crew training and Boeing gets some leading edge business.

Perhaps the triple 7 took it's name too seriously. "TAAG you're it, as it nails the light pole"
Just glad it didn't mow anyone over.

Interested to know if it is standard practice to park with brakes off and chocks or brakes on and chocks.

I am not trolling with anybody. I asked a reasonable question and your reply is an attack. You make no attempt to answer (maybe you do not know either?) and I await a more reasonable and thoughtful response to help me be better informed.

Usually brakes are off and nose and main wheels are chocked. Hydraulic pressure will bleed off after a period of time but more important the aircraft will not be able to be repositioned by a tug only. Although in most airlines a cockpit qualified ground staff usually occupies the left seat during towing ops with the APU running to provide brake pressure via the electrically operated Hyd Pumps.

Thank you. That is what I would have thought and your response was comprehensive and polite unlike Linbb above who seemd to delight in being a jerk!. What a sad way to live your life.

Thanks. I am sad for people who go therough life like that. I am a former Brit who has lived in the south for over 40 years and we have a great expression here "Bless his heart". Appropriate I believe

Let me place Andy's question into context you may comprehend. He wants to know if an aircraft, parked as it was, has the brakes left with chocks on the wheels, or do they leave brakes on and chock the wheels also? Highflyer1950 was nice and gave him the rundown on what happens.
HTH that question made no sense to you, boggles the mind!

Wow... a runaway plane on the tarmac and a bird taking off in the runway close to the event... Where was ground control?

no way this aircraft is airworthy. no way i am going to be a passenger on this aircraft. 777's bruise easily, so much has to be checked (by someone qualified to do so), so don't expect to see this bird flying for a few day, minimum

In speed tape we trust. Just grab another roll of it and gob some over that dent, and we are good to go

What do you really think about the Portuguese?
I believe this incompetence could be possible anywhere. Not just in Portugal.
