Asiana plane collides with Turkish jet.

An Asiana airliner carrying 222 passengers hit a stationary Turkish Airlines plane in Istanbul, Sunday, damaging the latter's vertical stabilizer. 

No one was hurt in the collision. The transport ministry is set to launch an investigation to uncover who is at fault. 

It may serve as a setback for Asiana which hopes to catch up with Korean Air, given the industry leader is embroiled in a slew of controversies hurting its reputation and pushing its chairman to the brink of resignation. 

According to the nation's second-largest airline and international media, the Asiana Airbus A330 heading for Incheon was taxiing on the runway of Istanbul Ataturk Airport before its starboard wing tip touched the Turkish A321's stabilizer.
