The Boeing 737-800, N3730B, operating as Delta Air Lines flight number 1733, was substantially damaged when it was hit by a baggage cart at New York-John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). At the time of the accident, there were 5 crewmembers aboard and no injuries.
Baggage handlers on the ramp were loading baggage onto the aircraft when the jet blast from a taxing Boeing 767-400ER blew an empty baggage cart from its parked position, which collided with the left side of the aft service panel, causing a 15 by 18 inch puncture through the aircraft skin and severing two stringers.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "A baggage cart impacting the airplane and causing substantial damage as a result of the jet blast from a passing airplane."
