Two aircraft crashed to the ground at Washington Dulles Airport
Yesterday, around 15:15 (local time), two aircraft collided on the ground at Washington Dulles Airport. The tail of a DHC-8-402 N341NG Bombardier - Colgan Air was hung by a Lufthansa Airbus A330-343X D-AIKE.
There were no casualties, but the aircraft suffered significant damage. The incident is now being investigated by the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board). It appears that Bombardier Colgan Air was flying from UA3912 to United Express on Pittsburgh - Washington (Dulles). There were 68 passengers on board. No one was hurt!
There were no problems with the Washington Dulles operational program.
This incident reminded us of a similar one from 2011. An A380 Air France flipped a CRJ-700 at JFK New York Airport and twisted it!
