Hello there,

I haven't seen any information about this here, so I'll thought I post this here.

Hereunder is what is published on the agent website afkl.biz (where a daily irregularity report is published). I have no further info... Hope the damage is quickly repaired and ncie to see that AF was able to replace aircrafts that quickly, especially the A380 flight which seemed to have departed without delay.


Report nb 3304 of Saturday October 30th, 2010 - 15H30 UTC
All the information given in our daily reports of 06h00 and 15h30 are in UTC time and are subject to change.

WEATHER AND AIR TRAFFIC

Cyclone Tomas is over South of Martinique and induces some delays and reschedules.

Well, a winglet is easily replaced so long as there isn't any additional damage to the wing. What type of a/c was the one that struck the A380 w/ the winglet?

The A380 on the other hand may have more substantial damage. Depending on how and where the "rear of the A380" was hit, you could be talking about fuselage damage that could include the skin, stringers, etc.

This is the first incident/accident having to do with the A380 after EIS, no?

Guess the other plane wasn't aware of how "The Law of Gross Tonnage" determines Right-Of-Way.

If I'm right AF022 CDG-JFK is operated by Boeing 777-200

CDG-JFK is typically a 777-300ER. That's what it's been recently

Nope,i think an SQ was pushed back onto grass after the tug had hydraulic failure.

Far from my friend, far from.

Handful of cases of Nose Gear RVDT failure meaning no steering available (SQ/QF @ LHR - runway closure, etc).
Belt loader running into QF A380 @ LHR late last year.
EK A380 last week leaking fuel @ LHR and having to be hangared at "the cathedral" for 2 days. EA called in to repair fuel manifold on engine.

Just 3 of the top of my head.....

Qantas had a tyre-burst on landing in Sydney on VH-OQC in April this year. But two or three days after, I flew on the same airframe from Sydney to London so the damage wasn't as bad as the news agencies liked to make out. There was a clip of a passenger who was watching his IFE with the tail-cam view showing sparks from under the aircraft. Looked spectacular but the aircraft was never in danger although try telling that to the media...

The A380 F-HPJB involved in this minor incident was arriving from JFK as AF007. It had to stop a few meters from its parking stand as there was a problem with a truck blocking its access.

The A330 operating AF022 CDG-JFK pushed back and when begining taxiing, its winglet hit the APU tail cone of the A380.

Minor damages on both aircraft.

The A380 is now in the AF Maintenance hangar and will be back into service on tuesday.

Hi everyone,

a little correction, the A 380 involved is F-HPJD. I was onboard when it happened.

Regards.

EK17 had a hard landing at MAN on 6th September, which caused damage to the right main landing gear. The aircraft stayed in MAN overnight and departed the following day.
