A truck hit the ventral strake of the scimitar winglet on the right wing of a LOT Polish Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 at Heathrow Airport (LHR/EGLL), preparing for flight LOT282 to Warsaw Chopin Airport (WAW/EPWA).

The estimated departure time for flight LO282 from LHR was at 11:30 local time, with scheduled arrival in Warsaw at 13:40. However, the damage to the sharklet was too severe and the flight was canceled following the incident.

“Due to the damage of the SP-LVD aircraft by the handling agent’s equipment and damaged winglet (sharklet), the flight from LHR to WAW has been cancelled,” a spokesperson for LOT Polish Airlines stated. They further stated that all passengers had been re-booked on other flights.
