Thankfully, no one has been hurt and presumably the aircraft will be returned to service shortly, to cater for the overwhelming demand for flights to Egypt.

According to lenta.ru - 344 passangers. And it must be correct figure, taking into account that it was charter flight.

Well, at least it's not an American media who would have reported a Boeing 737 with 200 passengers on board or something.

Anyone has pictures of the incident?

That's not a crane! It's the boarding stairs! I guess something got lost in translation! Big grin

Looks like some serious damage to the wingtip. You think they'll repair it or will they write it off?

This is a Russian plane we're talking about here - a few carefully placed blows with a large hammer will sort it out in no time. No way that is a write-off.

How about this scenario, the aircraft colided with a crane and then the boarding stairs were brought in for passengers to deplane. Then, when they were taking the above mentioned picture, they got a shot of the boarding stairs which were still in place and they crane was not visible. Plus the article says that the plane indeed colided with a crane.

Leo.

Less probable. It's seen that the boarding stairs frame got damaged too.

In 2006 998,000 Russian tourists visited Egypt, with the vast majority travelling to the Red Sea resorts of Sharm El Sheikh and Hurghada. Transaero has 4x weekly B747-200 flights to both SSH and HRG from DME, however the majority of flights (58%) between both countries are operated by IL86. With the Egyptian authorities banning the aircraft from September 2007 (due to noise pollution) it'll be interesting to see which aircraft will replace the needed capacity.

Unfortunately, no. HECTOP (to be pronounced like Nestor) is an extremely popular person in Russian blogosphere. The funny thing is that he lives somewhere in the States. He's a private pilot. He's got a lot of connections in aviation world. It allows him to have exclusive news and photos, like President Putin's IL-96 interior.

Definetely, we have few. One of the famous is http://avia.ru but it's all in Russian. What I could recommend you is the special English language section on aviation forum at http://aviaforum.ru/forumdisplay.php?f=27&langid=2

Or as the brilliant Bryant Gumble once stated regarding AA587, "The aircraft involved was a Boeing 767, commonly known as the Airbus".

I don't excuse that guy, but jokes besides, this is all about Airbus' tricky name. People who are far from aviation might hear it literally as "air bus", the public transport that flies by the air.

Long time ago I heard a story about elder man from India who was going to fly for the first time in his life. He was greatly confused when he was proposed to "board the Airbus". He argued that he had bought a ticket for airplane, not for airbus.  Smile

What's more: Here in Russia we often call any widebody aircraft "airbus" with no regard of the manufacturer. One can hear, say, that Ilyushin-86 was the first Soviet airbus.
