Planes Collide in Minor Incident at London Heathrow

I guess there’s really no such thing as a minor collision involving 2 planes, but that pretty much describes what happened when a British Airways 747 collided with a SriLankan A340 while taxiing at Heathrow.  No injuries were reported, but the airport was in a bit of a state of chaos (as you can imagine) when this occurred.  Airport authorities are investigating how this could have happened, and why it wasn’t avoided (a comment posted on the linked story suggests that passengers could see that the planes were going to collide.)
