      An Asiana A330 sheared off the tail of a Turkish Airlines' A321. Here's a video of it:






      Luckily no one was injured and the collision didn't result in a disaster.

      That will be expensive! 😱 😱 😱
      Hopefully ASIANA has a good liability insurance.

      I remember when an Asiana jumbo pulled the same trick against an Aeroflot IL-62 in Anchorage. Although the tail stayed on despite their best efforts...

      As if I needed more reason to never set foot on Asiana?
