Incident: Two Norwegian Aircraft Collide At Oslo-Gardermoen Airport…
The images above show the damage sustained to the two Norwegian Boeing 737-800 aircraft at Oslo Gardermoen Airport.
One of the aircraft involved was SE-RPI, which was idle on stand, with the other 737-800 identified as LN-ENO.
As per data from Planespotters.net, SE-RPI is a 7.9 year old aircraft that started off with the Norway-based carrier’s Irish subsidiary back in March 2016.
From there, it was handed over to the Swedish subsidiary in December 2019, where the aircraft has been since.
The collision between the two Norwegian Boeing 737-800 aircraft in Oslo-Gardermoen Airport have resulted in sustained damage to the ailerons of SE-RPI as well as the left hand winglet of the other aircraft involved in the incident.
LN-ENO was the aircraft that sustained the damage to it’s wingtip. As per data from Planespotters.net, the airframe is 6.7 years old and was delivered to Norwegian twice in June 2017 and then again in June 2021 post-bankruptcy and airline restart.
At this stage, it is unclear how long the repairs will take to both aircraft, with them grounded following this incident in Oslo-Gardermoen Airport.
