Eva Air plane collides with Thai Airways jet on Tokyo runway

An Eva Airways plane has collided with a Thai Airways aircraft on a runway at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, according to a Thai PBS World report. It’s understood there were around 100 passengers on the Thai Airways plane at the time and they have been flown to Thailand on two separate flights.

The two colliding aircraft were both Airbus A330s.

According to the report, nobody was injured in the runway collision, which occurred on Saturday. However, the incident left the Thai Airways aircraft with a damaged wing tip, meaning it was unable to fly. The collision ripped off the top half of the wing tip.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand says flights operated by All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines were used to fly the Thai Airways passengers to their final destination of Bangkok.

Meanwhile, the runway at Haneda Airport where the collision occurred had to be closed for around 2 hours. The CAAT says Japanese aviation investigators are now looking into how the accident happened.
