Antonov An-12BK, UR-DWF

Summary:

Whilst negotiating a gap between parked aircraft under the guidance of a marshaller and two assistants, the aircraft’s right wing struck the tailplane of one of the parked aircraft. The aircraft did not follow marshalling signals precisely and the marshaller and his assistants, one of whom was not trained in his assigned role, did not stop the aircraft before the collision had taken place. The gap provided less than the recommended minimum wing tip clearance.
