KLM flight KL601, a Boeing 747-400 (PH-BFV) and KLM flight KL623, a Boeing 787-9 (PH-BHA) both suffered damage in a ground contact incident at Amsterdam-Schiphol International Airport.
KL623 was instructed by the Schiphol ground controller to do a long push back from gate F8 to allow for a Boeing 747 to arrive at F8.
Subsequently, KL601 received a conditional clearance to be pushed back from neighboring gate F6 if sufficient clearance could be maintained with KL623.
Push back was commenced and during this maneuver, the right-hand winglet of KL601 hit the right-hand horizontal stabilizer of the Boeing 787.
Both aircraft were grounded for repairs.
