According to German tabloid Bild, a Renault Trafic with no driver crashed into the Bombardier Global 5000, German Chancellor Angela Merkel's government aircraft, at the Dortmund Airport.
The car damaged the plane, while the crew on board remained unharmed. The newspaper reported that at the moment of the incident, the German Chancellor wasn't on the plane. Now, the chancellor will be transported back to Berlin by a helicopter.
Airport spokeswoman Davina Ungruhe noted that a further investigation will clarify why the car started moving and caused the collision.
The incident comes just a few weeks after the aircraft had to make an emergency landing at Berlin's Schönefeld Airport, and even touched the ground with both wings.
