On 30 April, Doha Airport, Qatar faced a violent storm with gusts up to 61 knots (110 km/h). A parked Qatar Airways Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner (A7-BCT) started rolling and pushed a neighbouring Airbus A350-900 (A7-ALJ?) causing damage to both aircraft. A security camera recorded the incident.
But why does everybody hereunder tell about a 787-800 when the correct denomination is 787-8?
