An Asiana Airlines’ Airbus A330 crashed into a smaller passenger plane that was parked on the runway at Turkey’s Istanbul Ataturk Airport on Sunday, cutting off its tail.
In a video of the incident, the Airbus is seen taxing across the tarmac when its wing crashes into the tail of a parked Turkish Airlines A321 jet.

The Korea Times reported that the Asiana plane was taxiing on the runway before colliding with the A321, which resulted in a fire on the Turkish jet that forced fire crews to rush to the scene. The Asiana plane’s wingtip was also seriously damaged in the crash, the news site reported.
The Korean carrier was preparing to take off for Incheon, South Korea, before the accident forced the airliner to cancel the flight.
That flight was rescheduled for Monday and the passengers were reportedly offered hotel accommodations.
