I found this video on the tube. The captain side of the cockpit looks pretty damaged and maybe they weren't wearing their harnesses.

Re: Crashed Wonderboom plane crew ‘weren’t qualified’, report finds

Years ago i attended a seminar on aviation fuel hosted by one of the the fuel companies. It was standard practice, after any accident, to secure the last point of refueling and test the fuel. I'm not sure if they do this anymore.

Re: A Royal Air Maroc Boeing 787 hits a parked Turkish 777 at Istanbul Ataturk

All at Ataturk airport. Maybe they should have used the taxiway G which is parallel but further away from parked aircraft, but that is up to ATC, but crew have every right to request it.
