An Asiana Airbus A330 slammed its wing into the tail of a Turkish Airlines Airbus A321 at Istanbul Atatürk Airport this Sunday afternoon, completely destroying the tail of the Turkish aircraft (registered TC-JMM).

The Asiana aircraft was taxiing along taxiway Golf when it's right side wingtip sliced through the A321's vertical stabilizer much like a knife slicing through a stick of butter.

Airport authorities are investigating the cause of the accident.

Asiana and Turkish Airlines had not responded to ATW's request for comment at the time of publication.

The Asiana plane had just started to taxi before take off when it hit the other vehicle. Passengers were offered accommodation at nearby hotels some six hours after the accident occurred, according to reports.

"My sister Clare Chambers was on this Turkish Airlines plane in Istanbul yesterday, now tailless", Facebook user Pete Young posted on Monday.
