NTSB Factual Report

On May 1, 2013, at Newark Liberty International airport (EWR), at about 7:24 pm (EDT) an Express Jet Embraer E145, flight number 4226 was taxiing northbound on taxiway romeo (R) for departure to Nashville, Tennessee (BNA) from runway 22R and was stationary on Taxiway R between the intersections of taxiways mike (M) and yankee (Y) in sequence for departure. Taxiing behind the Express Jet was a Scandinavian (SAS) Airbus A333, flight number 908, awaiting departure to Oslo, Norway (ENGM). SAS was subject to a departure flow restriction and was advised to turn right at taxiway M and hold short of runway 22R at taxiway M. As SAS made the right turn onto taxiway M the left wing struck the horizontal and vertical stabilizer of the Express Jet. The SAS airplane received minor damage and the Express Jet airplane received substantial damage. There were no reported injuries. The recorders from both airplanes were removed and sent to the NTSB headquarters.

In accordance with ICAO Annex 13 protocols France, Sweden, Norway and Brazil aviation accident investigation authorities have been notified and invited to appoint accredited representatives.
