Commuter planes clip wings at LAX

LOS ANGELES -- The National Transportation Safety Board was investigating Saturday after two planes clipped wings at Los Angeles International Airport.

A United Express commuter plane with about 30 people on board clipped the wing of a parked aircraft as it departed for Palm Springs at around 8:15pm local time Friday, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) spokesman Ian Gregor said.

No injuries were reported but passengers on both planes were left shaken by the incident, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The departing plane was not under the direction of FAA air traffic controllers at the time, Gregor said.
