An Air China Boeing 737-800 parked at Tianjin Binhai International Airport suffered damage after strong winds pushed it into a nearby aerobridge.

The aircraft, registration B-5621, was parked at the airport when the incident happened on Saturday, 9 March 2013. The airframe was built in October 2011.

Strong winds measuring 25m/s (4,900ft/min) had pushed the aircraft, causing its nose to crash into the aerobridge, resulting in damage, says Air China.

There was no one on board the aircraft when the incident occurred.
