Two Planes Clip Each Other on JFK Runway

Robert Nickelsberg/Getty Images(NEW YORK) – An Air India plane that had just landed was taxiing down the runway when it bumped a JetBlue plane that was waiting on the tarmac Saturday morning, Federal Aviation Administration officials report.

According to the FAA, the wingtip of the Air India plane clipped the tail of the JetBlue plane at around 6:15 Saturday morning. No passengers or crew on either plane were hurt.

The JetBlue flight was bound for West Palm Beach, Florida, though the visible damage the wing had done to the plane’s rudder necessitated getting a different plane. Passengers boarded a new plane, which left three hours later.

Neither plane was being directed by air traffic controllers at the time of the collision.

FAA investigators are looking into the incident further.
