On 6 December, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines safely operated its Boeing 747-400 (PH-BFH) between Amsterdam Schiphol, The Netherlands and Toronto, Canada as KL691. After landing at Toronto Airport, while the aircraft was marshalled (guided) to its parking stand, the aircraft’s number 1 engine touched a parked service truck.
The airline was forced to cancel its return flight to Amsterdam while mechanics are inspecting the engine. The following pictures appeared on social media:
