On 6 June, a mobile stair – belonging to Indian airline SpiceJet and positioned next to a Boeing 737-700 (registered VT-SLA) – started moving backwards after heavy winds at Mumbai Airport, India. The mobile stairs impacted a stationary IndiGo Airbus A320 (VT-IHN), damaging the aircraft’s wing and engine cowling.
The airport authorities are investigating the incident.
The incident happened around 7.30 a.m. when the stepladder belonging to #SpiceJet (@flyspicejet), parked at stand C87 suddenly got detached due to heavy winds, moved backwards and banged into the #IndiGo (@IndiGo6E) aircraft parked nearby.
