Airliner clips another at Miami airport gate, none hurt among hundreds aboard; planes damaged

Authorities say a commercial airliner clipped another on the ground near a gate at Miami International Airport, but no one was injured among hundreds aboard the two aircraft.

Airport spokesman Marc Henderson told The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/13Jz8pV ) both planes were damaged, one on the wingtip and the other on the tail section.

Officials say an Aerolineas Argentinas Airbus that arrived with 240 passengers apparently struck an Air France 777-300 plane still at the gate and preparing to depart with 350 passengers for Paris.

Passengers arriving from Argentina disembarked. It wasn't clear if the Paris-bound passengers would be put on another flight.

Several flights were delayed. The National Transportation Safety Board was investigating.

Last month, two commercial aircraft were damaged in a small collision at Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport.
