The left wing winglet of an S7 Airlines Airbus A320neo (VP-BWC) collided into the APU of a Ural Airlines A320 (VP-BDL). The incident took place during taxiing at St Petersburg-Pulkovo Airport (LED), Russia today.

The S7 Airbus A320neo was operating flight S76378 from Saint Petersburg to Irkrtsk. The incident happened whilst the plane was taxiing to takeoff on the taxiway.

The Ural Airlines A320 had landed at Pulkovo airport after operating flight U679 from Moscow Domodedovo Airport. During the incident, the Ural Airlines A320 APU got separated and fell to the ground. The winglet subsequently sliced into the right-hand elevator, which caused the S7 Airbus A320neo to stop. There are no reported injuries in this incident.
