A delivery van wedged under the engine of a Dragonair plane after a collision at Hong Kong International Airport yesterday.

Video footage showed the van heading towards the Airbus A-330 as it rolled towards the runway for take-off.

The vehicle then swerved to avoid hitting the belly of the aircraft before ramming into the engine and being dragged for several metres. The van's driver suffered head injuries.
