Footage has emerged of a Corsair Airbus A330 suffering a ground collision with airstairs whilst being tugged at Paris Orly.
Incident: Corsair Airbus A330 Suffers Ground Incident at Paris Orly…
It is understood that the Corsair Airbus A330-300 involved in the ground incident at Paris Orly is registered as F-HROK.
As per data from Planespotters.net, F-HROK is a 13.7 year old airframe, which initially started out life as VQ-BEL with Aeroflot back in April 2010.
The aircraft remained with the Russian carrier for around ten years, until it was handed over to Corsair in July 2020.
Data from the website indicates that Wamos Air are due to take delivery of the jet as EC-ODR, with this no doubt hampered by the incident that happened at Paris Orly.
As we can see in the video, ground staff are pulling the Corsair Airbus A330-300 to what looks to be either a remote stand or a jetway, when the driver of the tug didn’t realise that airstairs were in the way of the aircraft.
From there, the aircraft’s left engine hit the airstairs, with members of the ground team near the airstairs seen running away from the scene to prevent injury.
At this stage, it is unclear what the scale of the damage is to the Corsair Airbus A330-300 at Paris Orly as this will need to be assessed by technicians.
All eyes will be on also when the aircraft will be delivered to Wamos Air as that looks to be upcoming based on data from Planespotters.
