A flight from Moscow’s airport of Sheremetyevo to Mexico has been delayed as the Airbus a350-900 accidentally dropped with its wing a watering machine on the side.


The crew members of Airbus including pilots didn't even notice what had happened on the tarmac but they were immediately informed by passengers who spotted through the porthole a smoking vehicle lying on the side just a couple of meters away from the airplane. 

An employee who was operating the watering machine received injury but no further details haven’t been shared.

The passengers of the airbus were waiting for another aircraft even though the airbus looked absolutely undamaged but the risk to keep staying there was unjustified.

The witnesses from the airport in the Moscow suburbs said that the aircraft was being towed.
