Appears to have happened earlier this morning when the Primera Air B738 nightstopper, departing (late) as the 07:15 PRI2871 to Malaga, hit the RYR B738's horizontal stabilizer with its winglet.

Ryanair was holding no.2 at K1 for 04.
The Primera was taxying behind to H1 - the collision occurred as the Primera was taxying behind on taxiway Hotel

So was the RYR actually stopped at the holding point or stopped some way before it?

If you've been to STN you'll know there's not much space at K1 for two aircraft and in any case surely the fault lies entirely with the Primera in this case as the Ryanair had its parking brake set!?

But surely everything is always Ryanair's fault?
