Two airliners collide while taxiing at London-Heathrow airport
A Korean Air Boeing 777 and an Icelandair Boeing 757 were involved in a ground collision at London-Heathrow Airport.
The Boeing 777-300ER, registered HL7782, was taxiing for departure as it was about to carry out Korean Air Flight KE908 to Seoul-Incheon Airport (ICN).
The Boeing 757-256, registered TF-FIK, was parked after performing Icelandair Flight FI454 from Reykjavik-Keflavik Airport (KEF).
The left-hand wingtip of the Boeing 777 came into contact with the rudder of the Boeing 757 and sliced through it before coming to a stop.
“No injuries have been reported but emergency services are attending to ensure all passengers and crew are safe and well,” an airport spokesperson told local media.
#heathrow seems to be trending a lot due to an incident a short while ago that took place between two aircraft. While I can’t comment on the nature of what happened, I must commend the excellent response from emergency services. That’s what makes Heathrow, always. pic.twitter.com/goBd8YfIdU— J (@Aviation_jamie) September 28, 2022
