HOT LINE TELEPHONE RECORDER- 25 FEBRUARY
Yes, this is a baggage handler here at Miami. When we are short of aircraft tugs, the pilots will use reverse thrust to back out of the gate. This is OK except for gate 7 when there is another plane parked at gate 6. Because ofthe way the ramp bends at that point, the plane at gate 6 is almost directly behind the one at gate 7. When I am working baggage at gate 6, I get a mouthful of dust and debris and I have lost one hat and a pair of glasses so far. I turned in a hazard report on this in December, but nothing has happened. Thank you.
