An Asiana Airbus A330 slammed its wing into the tail of a Turkish Airlines Airbus A321 at Istanbul Atatürk Airport this Sunday afternoon, (May 13, 2018) completely destroying the tail of the Turkish aircraft (registered TC-JMM). It is unclear as to what exactly happened, but FlightRadar24 data shows that the Asiana A330 bound for Seoul was beginning its taxi when it hit the A321 that was being parked at its gate.
The A321 appeared to be holding awaiting the ramp agents to marshal it to the gate (this is quite common) so was holding further back than normal. Thankfully, there were no injuries reported by either parties, but there was extensive damage to both aircraft.
