Photos taken at Logan International Airport appear to show damage to the wing of a plane that was involved in a low-speed collision with another plane Friday evening.

The Massachusetts Port Authority said one Delta aircraft struck the wing of another while both were at gates. No passengers were injured.

"This is minor, though they may not be able to use the aircraft if there was any damage," Massport told NBC10 Boston in a statement responding to an inquiry.

"We have had, like, a classic fender-bender," passenger Samantha Butler told NBC10 Boston. "You can tell it's bad, because all the flight attendants are in shock too, like, they've never seen this before, like, in all the time they've been flying."

The Arias family was on their way home after their son played in the Cooperstown All-Star Village tournaments in New York before spending some time in Boston.

"Kind of shocked, I guess," said Joshua Arias. "At first, I didn't know what happened, and then people were yelling out 'It connected with another plane.' I was kind of bummed cause I kind of wanted to get back home."

"We apologize to our customers for the inconvenience and delay in their travel plans following minor, low-speed contact of Delta flight 458 with Endeavor flight 5488, operating as a Delta Connection," a Delta spokesperson told NBC10 Boston. "All customers and crew members deplaned safely and normally. Customers will be reaccommodated on new aircraft onto their destinations."
