Boeing 777-232, N864DA
The aircraft was taxied onto the stand at an appropriate speed and aligned with the centre line; the airbridge was parked in the correct location. The stand guidance system had been calibrated correctly, and it was serviceable and operating at the time of the incident. The aircraft overran the stopping point and collided with the airbridge. The leading edge of the aircraft’s left engine intake cowl was damaged, and there was substantial damage to the airbridge. Ten safety recommendations have been made.
