Strong winds yesterday (30 April 2020) caused two Qatar Airways planes to collide on ground in Qatar. The two planes involved were a Boeing 787-800 Dreamliner and an airbus A350-900. The strong winds pushed the Dreamliner out of its parking zone and into the main body of the airbus plane.
The Airbus A350-900 was not operational for the last one week. Both planes were reportedly damaged by the impact. The incident was caught on the airport’s security camera.
