Two Kenya Airways Embraer ERJ-190 aircraft collide on the ground at JKIA.

Reg 5Y-KYR jumped off chocks while on ground run, crew tried to steer it from hitting hangar walls, hit parked plane Reg 5Y-FFF.

Both aircraft badly damaged, 5Y-KYR will be out of service for a long time.

A 340 jumped the chocks & was wriiten off. Time to find a better ground restraint.
The GPU also took a hiding with fire extinguisher was discharged on the it.

It may have been cheaper to hit the hanger?
What happens now with the crew? If the restraining system was faulty can they be blamed?

Embarrassing never the less :oops:

Wow, lucky no one was hurt, looks like a heavy impact.

They operate 15 ERJ 190s.... they've just lost 13 percent of their ERJ 190 fleet. Wonder if this will affect their schedule much?

You talking about the Etihad A340? You have your facts a bit sideways.

after it was powered up while unchocked, and an attempt to steer the aircraft out of danger reduced the effect of the brakes
