Two planes belonging to Arik Air, yesterday, brushed each other while manoeuvring out of the apron at the General Aviation Terminal, GAT, of Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos.
Following the incident, the two planes had their wing tips damaged and have been grounded to allow further investigation into the incident.
Reacting to the incidence, spokesman of the airline, Mr. Adebanji Ola, said in a statement: “Two of our aircraft, Boeing 737-800NG were this afternoon (yesterday) involved in a wing-tip brush at the General Aviation Terminal, GAT, of Murtala Muhammed Airport, Ikeja, Lagos.
One of the aircraft, 5N-MJP, was marshalled out of the ramp for a scheduled flight, when its wing brushed that of another aircraft, 5N-MJQ, parked on the ramp.
“There were no incidences as the safety of passengers was not jeopardized. We have grounded the two aircraft and are looking into the incident,

It's just carelessness that made this happen. The pilot or the banks man should have controlled the aircraft well...
