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. Tail of a Bombardier DHC-8-402 N341NG - Colgan Air was grabbed by an Airbus A330-343X D-AIKE Lufthansa.
There were no casualties, but the aircraft suffered major damage. The incident is now being investigated by the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board). It appears that the Bombardier Colgan Air aircraft was flying UA3912 for United Express on the Pittsburgh - Washington (Dulles) route. 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!
