Aeroplanes Collide At Heathrow

Two aircrafts were involved in a minor collision at Heathrow Airport in the UK. Fortunately, nobody was injured in the accident:

A spokeswoman for Sri Lankan Airlines said the “minor incident” involved flight UL502 to Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanka, via the Maldives, which had 286 passengers and crew on board.

She said: “It is reported that the wing tips of the two aircraft brushed against each other while taxiing.

“No injuries were reported. All passengers have been transferred to city hotels until alternate travel arrangements are made during the course of the day.”

An eye-witness, aboard the Sri Lankan airliner, claimed it hit the BA aircraft from behind while manoeuvring on the runway.
