2015-10-08 Transasia Airways Airbus A321 collided with hangar at Taipei


The aircraft received damage when it hit hangar roof whilst under tow.

The A321 was about to be pulled out of a maintenance hangar at Songshan Airport when the tail accidentaly collided with the roof structure resulting in a dent in the vertical fin.

It appears the driver initiated a turn to the right too early allowing the tail to swing out of the centre axis before it could clear the hangar doors.

Nobody was injured in the event.
Damage to the quite new aircraft is repairable.
