  1. Plenty of daylight with no fog at that time so this was not a night/visibility issue. Was the King Air on the taxi centerline and the fuel truck in the wrong area on the tarmac? Or was the truck parked in a designated off-taxi area and the plane taxiing off of the marked taxi path on the tarmac? It's a tiny airport with only two rows of small singe engine GA parking on the main tarmac and five spots for larger wingspan singles and twins off to the side. Helluva screw up there.
