An Asiana Airlines Airbus A330-300 has received significant damage to its tail after making contact with a hangar door.

FlightGlobal understands that the aircraft, registered HL8258, was being towed out of a hangar at Incheon International airport on 28 August when the left-hand horizontal stabiliser hit the hangar door.

Sources indicate that the aircraft received substantial damage to its tailcone and horizontal stabilisers. It is unclear if the auxiliary power unit was also damaged.

FlightGlobal approached Asiana for comment but no response had been received at the time of publishing.

Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that the 2012-build aircraft is owned by Blackbird Capital and is managed by Air Lease Corporation. Asiana has been the sole operator of the aircraft.
