On 26 June, 2018, a Korean Air Boeing 777-200ER was struck by the right winglet of an Asiana Airbus A330-300 at Seoul Gimpo Airport. Most probably during the taxiing, the Airbus winglet hit the parked Korean Air aircraft and caused substantial damage.
Luckily no injuries were reported as there was none on board. The South Korean authorities are investigating the incident.
