Détails:
Southwest Flight 6263 was struck by a Southwest Airlines maintenance truck as the aircraft was being marshalled into its gate at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (KBWI), Maryland, USA. There were no injuries.
According to the flight crew, they had cleared the safety zone prior to joining the J-line. According to ground witnesses, the maintenance vehicle appeared to initially slow down for the airplane, but then appeared to increase its speed to pass in front of the airplane before it could enter the gate. The airplane sustained damage to the left and right nose landing gear doors, nose landing gear trunnion fittings, and to the left-hand forward fuselage skin and stringers.

The aircraft was ferried to Indianapolis for repairs on May 13 and was back in service on June 11, 2018.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The maintenance truck driver's failure to give way to the airplane that resulted in the truck colliding with the taxiing aircraft."
