A passenger plane belonging to Lebanon was involved Wednesday in a minor on-ground collision with a Turkish plane in Lagos State.
Lebanon’s national carrier, Middle East Airlines, was heading to Beirut, the capital of Lebanon when it clipped a parked Turkish Airlines 777-300ER at Lagos airport.
“The wing edge of an MEA plane collided into the edge of a Turkish jet on the runway of the Lagos airport in Nigeria,” MEA chairman Mohammed al-Hout told al-Jadeed TV.
“The plane was stopped and the passengers were evacuated pending checkups to verify whether it is capable of flying,” Hout added.
