Unusual collision at Warsaw Chopin Airport. The passenger bridge damaged a towed Dreamliner that was supposed to fly to Tokyo. The incident was confirmed by a spokesman for LOT Polish Airlines.

The incident occurred before 8 p.m. at Chopin Airport in Warsaw. A LOT Polish Airlines Dreamliner was damaged. – The collision with the passenger boarding bridge occurred while the plane was being towed to prepare it for today's flight to Tokyo. The left engine cover was damaged. The plane will not be able to fly because of this – Artur Węgrzynowicz, a reporter from tvnwarszawa.pl, learned.

As we have unofficially managed to establish, the tow truck driver probably made a mistake when determining the distance. – The plane returned from Mumbai yesterday and was towed from the hangars to the terminal to take passengers on an evening flight to Tokyo – added Węgrzynowicz.

Collision while towing

We asked the spokesman for LOT Polish Airlines to confirm the incident. – While towing a Boeing 787 aircraft, registration number SP-LRC, to the parking stand, the engine nacelle came into contact with the passenger bridge. After the procedure is completed, the aircraft will be handed over to technical services to verify the damage and perform repairs – commented Krzysztof Moczulski.

Does this mean that the flight to Tokyo is at risk? – Probably not, we have a plane that can make the flight – the spokesman replied.

Our reporter also determined that on August 5, 2017, there was a collision of the same plane at the Toronto airport. – While approaching the parking space, the Air Canada Rouge plane hit the wingtip of a standing LOT Dreamliner – he pointed out. He added that the Dreamliner was then withdrawn from service while it was being repaired.
