One of Aeroflot's Airbus A330-300s appears to have suffered substantial wing damage during a ground incident involving a Royal Flight Boeing 777-300ER.

Social media images purportedly taken on board the A330 (VQ-BMY) indicate that the aircraft sustained left-hand aileron and winglet damage in the collision.

The extent of damage to the 777 (VP-BGK) is less clear.

Aeroflot's A330 was reportedly operating the SU202 service from Moscow Sheremetyevo to Beijing on 3 September when it was struck by the 777 which was under tow.

The A330 is a 2012 airframe fitted with Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines, according to Cirium fleets data.

Royal Flight has three 777-300ERs in its fleet, all leased from AerCap, one of which (VQ-BGP) was introduced three weeks ago.
