Las Vegas Sands Boeing 747SP was critically damaged in a hangar collision with another aircraft while undergoing maintenance at Marana Airport, AZ, USA.

In recent images that appeared on social networks, one of the two Las Vegas Sands Boeing B747SPs can be seen badly damaged in a hangar at Marana Airport, AZ, USA. The accident could have been caused in the hangar located west of the airport , near runway 12/30.

Both of the Las Vegas Sands Boeing B747SPs were undergoing maintenance. The VP-BLK (originally delivered to TWA in 1980) has been parked since September this year and the VQ-BMS (originally delivered to PanAm in 1979) has been parked since August of this year. According to data, these two aircraft would have been based in Asia.

Apparently, the plane has hit the wing of another plane that has become embedded in the front, just below the cabin. Also its right wing has collided with one of the hangar pillars resulting in the breakage of the wingtip.
