Nobody was injured, and the operation of the airport (Manchester) was not affected.

There is a very good visitor park at Manchester Airport, spent a day there recently.

Given the number of ground movements at even a provincial airport, the fact that the pilot in most cases can see little other than the nose cone, and the aircraft is operating at a speed and in a medium and in a number of dimensions for which it was not primarily designed, it is surprising that there are not more minor scrapes.

these are quiet common, i spent 3 years working in heathrow in early 80's remember several of these type incidents were never news then.

one was one of the first gulfstream 3 executive jets was doing a world tour as a demo to get drum up sales till a ground worker forgot he was driving an airliner stair case and tried to drive under its wing [cost BA a lot of money]. Another the blast from a taxing airliner blew over a small high wing cessna, and like the one in the link wing tips often clipped parked planes.

It sounds to be just as frequent as bumps in the supermarket car park then...

Not quite, it doesn't happen that often, but it does happen.
