Two Jets Clip One Another at Logan Airport

Scott E. MacFarlane(BOSTON) -- A pair of commercial passenger planes clipped each other while taxiing on runways at Boston's Logan International Airport, possibly injuring one person.

Both planes suffered damage in the 7:30 p.m. incident, according to Massport, an agency that manages Logan Airport.

"While taxiing out for departure, the wing from Flight 266 from Boston to Amsterdam made contact with the vertical stabilizer of ASA Flight 4904, also on departure from Boston to Raleigh-Durham, [N.C.]," Delta Air Lines said in a prepared statement Thursday evening.

"Flight 266 returned to the gate and passengers deplaned without incident," the statement continued. "Passengers on ASA Flight 4904 deplaned and were transported by bus to the terminal. Both aircraft have been removed from service for inspections and passengers are currently being reacommodated on other aircraft."

A passenger was taken to a hospital for precautionary reasons, a Massport official said. One person involved in the incident complained of neck pain, according to ABC News Radio affiliate WBZ-AM.

There were 204 passengers and 11 crew on the Delta 767, according to ABC News Boston affiliate WCVB. There were 74 passengers and 3 crew members on the second plane, a flight chartered by Delta, according to WCVB.
