WATCH: Airplanes collide on runway

Two airplanes ended up colliding with each other on a runway at Ataturk Airport in Istanbul.

An Asiana Airlines aircraft crashed into another aircraft of Turkish Airlines after a miscalculation.

In the video, the Asiana Airlines aircraft is seen lopping off part of the tail end of the Turkish Airlines aircraft.

It is being reported that the Asiana Airlines flight was preparing for an early take-off, well before the Turkish Airlines plane had completed all its landing manoeuvres.

Both flights were cancelled as a result of the incident.

No one was injured in the collision.
