Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 787 clips tail section of parked KLM Boeing 747 freighter at Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania


On 16 June, an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner (ET-ATH) just landed at Dar-es-Salaam airport, Tanzania after operating flight ET864 from Prince Said Ibrahim Moroni Airport, Comoros.

During taxi on the apron, however, the Dreamliner clipped her left wing with the tail section (apu?) of a parked KLM Royal Dutch Airlines Boeing 747 freighter (PH-CKA). That aircraft came in from Johannesburg, South Africa.

Looking at the pictures, there is considerable damage to the tail section of the KLM 747. Both aircraft are still on the ground at moment of writing.
