It’s amazing how often this seems to happen. When pulling millions of dollars around you would think airlines would be a little more careful— Kyle (@hendkywi) December 31, 2019
The collision caused the smaller airbus plane to do almost a full rotation on the tarmac.
Why are they having so much trouble with this lately? I thought that was one of the reasons they painted guide lines and installed lights. Makes no sense at all.— Ken Mist (@eyeno) December 31, 2019
No information has been released about how much damage the planes have sustained.
