Bit to the right! Nuclear war contingency plane damaged in hangar mishap

A US Navy aircraft used to maintain strategic communications in the event of a nuclear attack was disabled when its tail clipped the door of the hangar while being towed out last week. Repairs could cost millions.

If you thought denting the fender of the family car while pulling out of the garage was a big deal, this story might put it in perspective. Those responsible for towing the E-6B Mercury aircraft out of its parking spot at the Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma definitely failed to do their homework beforehand, damaging the plane’s tail fin in the process.
