Narrative:
Two Boeing 737-800 aircraft of Smartwings (OK-TVW and N277EA) were involved in a ground contact incident at Prague-Ruzyne Airport, Czech Republic.
Both aircraft were taxiing for departure when apparently the left-hand horizontal stabilizer of N277EA contacted the right-hand winglet of OK-TVW. Both flights were cancelled.
OK-TVW resumed service later the same day.
