After a hangar collision in Dhaka, Biman Bangladesh Airlines has grounded two planes. A Boeing 777-300ER and a Boeing 737-800 were involved in the disaster, which happened on Sunday. 

The collision happened when the Boeing 737, which had just completed its routine maintenance, was being dragged into a hangar where the Boeing 777 was being serviced.

According to reports, the tail of the Boeing 737 collided with the nose of the Boeing 777. Both aircraft will not be allowed to fly until they have been fixed, according to officials. 

Both planes have been transferred to engineering and maintenance for additional examination and repairs, and Biman Bangladesh has contacted Boeing for assistance if it is needed. 

Dr. Abu Saleh Mostafa Kamal, Biman's Managing Director and CEO, stated, "We are assessing whether the aircraft can be repaired by our engineers and technical persons."

Although the extent of the damage is still being investigated, airline authorities have suggested that the crash might cause both planes to be grounded for two weeks. 

The 777's weather radar and the 737's vertical stabiliser were both damaged, according to Bdnews24.com.

Following the event, Biman Bangladesh was compelled to postpone one of its flights to Dubai. If the two planes are out of commission for a lengthy period of time, Biman may have to reschedule or cancel more flights.
