Dramatic footage has captured the moment two planes collide on the tarmac, with one aircraft completely severing its tail in the process.
An Asiana Airlines A330 was believed to be taxiing to its gate at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport when its wing struck a Turkish Airlines A321.
The crash happened after the Turkish Airlines aircraft pulled up about 30 metres short of its parking boundaries, NewsHub reported.
It appears the Turkish Airlines aircraft was sticking out over the path being used by the Asiana Airlines pilots, when the planes collided.

No injuries have been reported, and a full investigation is underway.
