    This is why...

    You don't let 20 year old ramp monkeys tow a Gulfstream 550. Hey, it only cost about $50M...



    The employee has probably been banned from the aviation business for life plus 10 years.

    Maybe he swerved to avoid a dead cat on the tarmac...

    Must not have been Navy trained. A 18 year old could tow a aircraft, worth many times that, on a Aircraft carrier, at sea, in a typhoon, and no put a scratch on it.

    That's about 25 tons. About as much as a loaded B-17, or a fully-loaded F-15 or similar fighter. Rampy probably just got the tug going too fast pulling the G550. Momentum and all that. With nobody aboard, nothing to steer or stop it....get 50,000 pounds going too fast and it's gonna go where it wants to go.
