AZ - SAA Ground Collision In DKR?

Tue Jan 27, 2004 7:16 pm

Just found this:

An Alitalia Boeing 767-300, operating flight AZ851, that was taxiing for takeoff to Milan struck a parked South African Airbus A340-300, that was about to continue flight SA203 inbound from Jo'burg and bound for New York JFK, at Dakar's Yoff Airport (Senegal) on Sunday.
The SAA jet sustained damage to its fuselage and rudder, no further info available at this time.

Does someone know more ?

Is SAA already operating the 343 ? My understanding was that the JNB-DKR-JFK service was operated by a 744.
