Pakistan International Airlines flight PK789, a Boeing 777-200LR (AP-BGY), contacted a parked Air France Boeing 777-200ER (F-GSPP) while taxiing to the stand at Toronto International Airport in Canada.

The Air Fance 777, flight AF356, had arrived an hour earlier after a flight from Paris-CDG. It was being prepared for the return leg to Paris as AF351.
