A380 Hits Bridge At Pearson

April 16/2014-The Emirates Airbus A380-861 (A6-EDZ) was operating as UAE241 from Dubai Intl, United Arab Emirates (OMDB) to Toronto LBPIA (CYYZ). After landing at Toronto the aircraft taxied to gate 175A. During positioning at the gate the number 2 engine struck the passenger bridge causing damage to the cowl. It was determined that the bridge had not been appropriately positioned to accommodate a Class F aircraft. Maintenance subsequently replaced the cowl and carried out all associated inspections related to impact damage with engines running with no findings found. The aircraft was returned to service and ferried to Dubai.
