An El Al Boeing 787 Dreamliner was grounded after its wing struck an electric pole in Las Vegas on Friday while being towed to a parking space.
A preliminary investigation revealed that the airport employee failed to wait for someone to direct him before towing the plane.
The wing was severely damaged, with pictures showing a large hole in the wing. The impact of the crash on the electric pole also caused a brief power outage.
El Al canceled the return flight from Las Vegas to Tel Aviv, apologizing to the passengers for the inconvenience.
