Two Delta Planes Collide on Taxiway at Logan Airport

(NECN: Josh Brodagir, Alysha Palumbo, Boston) -  Two Delta planes collided on the taxiway at Boston's Logan airport Thursday night.

The wing of a Delta Boeing 767 jet clipped the tail of another Delta jet, operated by America Southeast Airlines, which provides regional air service for Delta.

Phil Orlandella, Boston Logan International Airport spokesman, said one person complained of neck pain, but there were no other reported injuries.

Delta spokesman Trebor Banstetter says the wing from Delta Flight 266 from Boston to Amsterdam hit the vertical stabilizer of Atlantic Southeast Airlines Flight 4904 from Boston to Raleigh-Durham.

The Delta jet returned to the gate and ASA passengers were taken by bus to Terminal A. Some passengers were being put on other planes, while others were being put up in a hotel for the night.

The Atlanta-based Delta says both aircraft have been removed from service for inspections.
