As CS-DKE aircraft taxied from its parking position on the Delta ramp at Farnborough Airport, its left winglet severed the right winglet of a parked, unoccupied Global Express aircraft, C-GGLO. The Delta ramp was not painted with parking stand markings. Although the flight crew had identified that wingtip clearance was a concern, the pilot taxiing CS-DKE did not detect the collision. The investigation identified similarities with collisions involving the wingtips of larger aircraft. The operator of CS-DKE has introduced a procedure to prevent reoccurrence, and the airport operator has taken safety action.
