On 9 February, two Kenya Airways Embraer ERJ-190 aircraft collided while on the ground at Nairobi Airport. Apparently 5Y-KYR jumped off her chocks during a “ground run”. The crew then tried to avoid the aircraft from hitting hangar walls, but the aircraft hit a parked Embraer (5Y-FFF) instead. Both aircraft received major damage.
