    ..........Just noticed the engine nacelles are sitting on the ground. This repair will be in the many millions and there may be damage to the wings also stressing where they are attached to the fuselage !!!!!

    Really a mess and a dumb move by that (former) employee!!;)

    ...it will be interesting to see if the operator even repairs the aircraft? I would suspect that the insurance will part out the airframe if the damage got into the wings. If the aircraft is a lease, I suspect the leasor doesn't want a damaged airframe. Yes, it's a silly mistake by a former employee!!
