Ryanair flight FR205, flying to Dublin, has been shunted from behind whilst waiting for takeoff clearance at Stansted Airport this morning.
The 737-800 was hit from behind by Primera flight PF2871, also a 737-800, causing damage to the tail and the wingtip of the Ryanair plane.
According to The Independant no injuries have been reported.
It comes as voters go to the polls in Ireland to vote on the repeal of the 8th Amendment - according to The Sun, Ryanair has been unable to offer an alternative flight until 1:30am tomorrow morning, by which time the polls will have closed. Airport operations were briefly suspended, but have now resumed.
It also comes just 11 days after a similar incident at Istanbul, with a collision occuring between Asiana A330, and a Turkish Airlines A321.
In short, what’s going on people?!
