Mototok at Heathrow Airport

I learned today that the yellow machine under this plane is a Mototok, a new generation of plane tugs.

They are remote controlled, require less manpower and are energetically more efficient.

When they did the pilot at Heathrow airport, 5 years ago, they measured a 53% reduction in flight delays.

Unfortunately, that didn’t help today with our flight delay but the machine is still pretty cool.
