Air France Boeing 787 Collides with Light Pole at Raleigh-Durham Airport

In a recent incident at Raleigh-Durham International Airport, an Air France Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner was damaged after colliding with a light pole. The accident occurred on Friday afternoon at 4:20 p.m. The aircraft involved in the incident was stationed at Gate C24 on the day of the accident. The collision resulted in damage to the left wing of the plane. Photos from the scene showed crews examining the wing after the incident. A light pole that was broken at its base and lying on the ground was also seen in photos from the scene.


There were no reports of injuries. However, the incident led to the cancellation of Air France Flight 693 from Raleigh-Durham International Airport to Charles de Gaulle/Roissy Airport, located about 14 miles northeast of Paris. As of Sunday afternoon, the damaged jet was still parked and sitting at Raleigh-Durham International Airport.


Air France's inaugural flight from Paris to Raleigh-Durham International Airport launched on October 30. The airline operates the Paris route three days a week until March 31, when it begins daily nonstop service. The incident has raised concerns about the safety of operations at the airport.
