Ship 5660 damaged by a De-Icing Truck in MKE

The following information was posted on a nwa crew BB and should be verified/confirmed:

"According to someone I know, the starboard elevator of a 757 was damaged by a deicing truck. The aircraft was ship 5650, the same airplane that was stabbed by an A319 at LGA a few years ago. The aircraft was going MKE-DTW-MCO and it was full. The flight was cancelled. There's no news link to it."

Any word on this accident?

These things happen. Why would you expect a news story for what really amounts to a flight delay.

Accidents at the gate sometimes are reported

I don't know if a newspaper will pick up this story. The 757/319 accident in NYC a few years ago was widely reported.

That was a significant accident with severe damage to the A319. I do not recall if it was a right off.

One 1/6 my Pinnacle CRJ NW 5914 from MEM-BWI backed its left winglet into a luggage cart used for the gate checked baggage while being towed back from the jetway by the ground crew. We sat on the plane while the mechanics and pilots decided if it was serious. They decided it was just a superficial paint scrape and we left an hour late. The pilots offered free booze to everyone for our inconvenience even though it was 10AM saying it was cocktail time somewhere in the world.
