Jorge Manalang, an Envoy ramp instructor was in the right place at the right time yesterday. His quick actions with a pushback tug at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport prevented anyone from being injured and damage to an aircraft. The catering cart, on other hand, will likely be out of service for a while.

Meet Jorge Manalang
As American Airlines flight 4104 (operated by Envoy) was being catered for departure from Chicago to Cedar Rapids, a case of water fell on to the accelerator of the catering cart, sending it into a reverse spin and perilously close to an Envoy Embraer E145. Envoy Ramp Instructor Jorge Manalang ran across the ramp and climbed aboard a pushback tractor, using it to knock the out of control catering cart on its side.

Manalang’s quick actions prevented what could have been a significant incident. And while Manalang is a ramp instructor, it’s doubtful he’ll be passing on this particular skill to new employees.
For all the excitement in Chicago, flight 4104 arrived just 5 minutes late in Cedar Rapids.
