On Monday morning, two flights that were due to take off from Boston Logan International Airport made touch with one another close to the gate area, according to federal aviation and airport officials.
Around 8:30 a.m., United Airlines Flight 515’s right wing collided with United Airlines Flight 267’s tail while it was being pushed back from the gate by a tow tug, according to preliminary data supplied by the Federal Aviation Administration.
Each aircraft was a Boeing 737.
There were no reported injuries.
According to airport officials, Flight 267 was scheduled to travel to Denver, while Flight 515 was en route to Newark. Later in the day, a new itinerary was made for both flights.
An email addressed to United asking for more details hasn’t been responded to.
The investigation is still ongoing.
A Learjet charter jet crossing an adjoining runway one week before forced a JetBlue flight from Nashville to landing at Logan to take evasive action.
