The Boeing 737-800 sustained substantial damage with parts of the lower belly ripped off underneath the aircraft. However, the registration of the plane is unknown as of now.
The incident took place when the 737 was being moved to another stand as it was parked at a maintenance bay. However, the tug vehicle crashed the aircraft with some force, leaving a hole in the fuselage.
