It seems there was a taxiing incident last night in ACC, between LH A330-300 D-AIKB, and Turkish Airlines A340-300 TC-JIJ. Turkish was able to depart after a few hours delay but the LH flight 567 to Frankfurt sustained more of the damage and in still on the ground in ACC.

I hope the damage on the LH 330 is not too bad! This is rather unfortunate.

Same happened to KLM A 330-200 and Emirates A340-500 @ Khartoum last week. KL touched Emirates with wing tip, causing substantial damage. KL could continue after inspection.

Is it ground error? If the plane is being pushed back, the pilots cant see whether the wings going to hit something?

It can often depend on the size of the apron and the markings on the taxiway; at KRT, for example, the taxiway markings didn't offer enough clearance, but if you allow too much room, you're in the mud; sure, they should have had wing-walkers, but they will in future. People forget that although these aircraft might have lower capacities than 747s, their wingspans are greater! Some of these smaller African airports are simply not designed to hold more than one of these aircraft at one time (although not saying ACC is one of these!).

According to an alert that i got, it appears that LH was in for landing while the Turkish Airlines was trying to take off at the same time. if that is true then it will be ATC faults bet we can't blame anyone until we know what really happen. I am from Ghana I am very happy about how the country is doing with a lots of airlines wanted start service there but the same time, I don't think ACC is big enough to Handle all of them. Virgin Atlantic also just bump from 3X to 4X weekly. Which is a good thing but at what cost. I think ACC needs another runway for sure.

G'Day!

Both flights depart at the same time, 21:45 LT ACC. One to FRA, the other to LOS & IST.
So it must have been an incident while pushing back, either both at the same time, or just one at the time (with the other waiting), or upon taxiing. The LH A333 was hit at the right wing. It has an estimate in its flight plan of 20:55 UTC tonight to depart back to FRA. So this flight will be around 23 hours late then. If TK departed already, then they have lots to tell and inspect at its home base after arrival today.
Those nasty incidents, glad, that nothing more happened. I agree about the size of the ramp and taxiways at some airports at Africa, as well as the wingspan of such twin airliners.

Happy landings all

Ramp incidents seem to happen on a regular basis in Africa. If I remember correctly there was one in Luanda not so long ago. KRT and now this in less than 6months. I
