Narrative:
The McDonnell Douglas MD-83 sustained damage in a ground collision accident with a fuel truck. The aircraft was taxiing to the terminal at the time of the accident.

Cause (translated from Spanish):
On a scheduled air transport flight, while taxiing to the platform, there was an impact of the left wing tip with the upper rear side of a fuel truck, due to the combination of the following factors:
- Entering the platform while rolling at a speed higher than walking pace,
- Failure to follow the axis line running round the aircraft 16 m before the visual guide taxiing and No. 4 parking position.
- Not having a wing walker.
- The Concesionario Airport did not comply with the provisions of the Operations Manual of the operator of the ramp service provider, nor the PUOAM [Operational Area Movement Plan].
