It could have been worse. They could have been
flying this far out of weight and balance.
Seven workers were stranded about 40 feet above the ground
Thursday when the World Airways MD-11 they were unloading suddenly
tipped onto its tail, nose-high in the air at Los Angeles
There was no immediate indication as to why the aircraft tipped
back on its tail. The seven workers were stranded sky-high for
about an hour until they were rescued by an LAX Fire Department
ladder truck. As for the aircraft, it looks like airport workers
will probably have to use a crane to right it.
