No casualties were reported.
The wing was badly damaged in the 10 AM mishap, but the jet fuel did not leak and no fire broke out.
An investigation has commenced into whether the transport driver had been negligent.
The passengers were moved to another plane and the flight took off for Germany, only somewhat delayed.
