Northwest Planes Clip Wings, No Injuries

Two Northwest Airlines planes clipped wings on the ground at Minneapolis St.-Paul International Airport.

Officials say there are no reports of injuries.

Metropolitan Airports Commission spokesman Patrick Hogan says the incident happened shortly before 4 p.m. Sunday. One Airbus A330 had just landed and was taxiing to the gate area when it got too close to another Airbus A330 at a neighboring gate and the wings clipped.

There were no passengers on the plane that was sitting at the gate.

Hogan says both planes had some damage to the wing tips.

Hogan says the Federal Aviation Administration was contacted, and federal authorities will decide whether the FAA or the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate.
