An investigation is underway after two Ryanair aircraft collided at Stansted Airport on Saturday morning.
One Boeing 737-800 heading to Warsaw and another that had just landed at the Essex airport from Frankfurt were damaged from the collision at the airport at around 6.50am.
One aircraft had the wing tip damaged while the tail cone came off the other. Both pilots were breathalysed at the scene which both returned with zero, according to a report by The Independent.
The incident led to three hour delays at Stansted, as passengers disembarked the Ryanair aircraft. They later left the airport on two replacement planes.
A Stansted Airport spokesperson said: “We can confirm two aircraft were involved in a minor collision while on the ground at Stansted this morning. Both planes suffered some damage but there were no reported injuries to passengers or crew. The airport is operating as normal while an Air Accidents Investigation Branch investigation takes place.”
