It would - as reported - a unit of the state airline Conviasa and other Santa Barbara Airlines. The collision was between two rear parts when the aircraft Conviasa was moving

The newspaper Panorama outlines: "Light collision between Conviasa A340 and MD80 SBA at 3:40 pm in Caracas', reported through our social networks by one follower Guillermo Mole

Until 5:00 in the afternoon of Friday, no authority had confirmed the information. However, a couple of pictures jumped to the network to show the units involved in the crash that all point out it was a minor incident and that the damage would have been assessed immediately.
