2 airplanes again clip wings at New Jersey's Newark Airport
Posted October 12
NEWARK, N.J. — Two airplanes have again clipped wings at New Jersey's Newark Liberty International Airport for the second day in a row.
Authorities say a United Airlines plane was backing out of a gate Wednesday evening when it made contact with an Austrian Airlines plane, which was parked at another gate.
The incident comes a day after a United Airlines plane and a Lufthansa plane clipped wings while on the ground at Newark.
A spokeswoman for Chicago-based United said Tuesday that the United plane was at a stop when the empty Lufthansa plane made contact with it. A spokeswoman for Cologne, Germany-based Deutsche Lufthansa AG disputed that, saying its aircraft was parked when it was damaged.
No one was hurt in either incident.
They both remain under investigation.
