An Airbus aircraft 380 collided with a building and a coach parked at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi International Airport on Saturday morning. However, no casualties were reported.
The aircraft, which was scheduled to fly to the Thai northern city of Chiang Mai for a show, was moving backwards when it collided with the building and coach.
One wing of the plane was slightly damaged. Engineers said the engines were not affected and the wing could be repaired in several hours, Thai Traffic Radio reported.
Dozens of cracks were found on the runways and taxiways of the Suvarnabhumi International Airport, located some 50 km from central Bangkok, in late 2006, forcing some parts of the airport to halt services until recently.
