2 United planes touch at O'Hare, cause long delay By Jason George and Scott Goldstein
Chicago Tribune, August 9, 2005



A wingtip-to-wingtip brush between two United Airlines planes waiting to take off from Chicago O'Hare International Airport on Monday frayed the nerves and patience of many of the 223 passengers aboard the two aircraft, but it injured no one.



The incident occurred about 3:15 p.m. and involved United Flight 682 to New York's LaGuardia Airport and Flight 618 to Reagan Washington National Airport in Washington, said United spokesman Jeff Green.



Both Airbus A320 planes were waiting in a holding area known to pilots as the "penalty box," where aircraft are often sent after they have departed the gate but are not yet cleared to take off. Flight 618 started moving, and its left wing clipped the stationary Flight 682's right wing.



"We're taxiing along, and all of a sudden we hear a clunk," said Kelly McClanahan, who was returning home to Washington on Flight 618. "We look out the window, and our wing was under their wing.



"It was like--Oh, boy, now that is exciting."



Exciting as the moment might have been, the subsequent three hours or so were a lesson in tedium, McClanahan said. The planes' passengers sat in the parked aircraft, while aircraft technicians assessed damage to both planes.



"They gave us pretzels and water," McClanahan said.



Passengers on Flight 682 had the benefit of soft drinks and a film that was in progress, as that flight had already been delayed for more than an hour.



"Well, things are going bad and just getting worse," Brad Jones, 54, of Lakewood, Wash., remembered thinking when the planes touched.



Flight 682 was able to taxi back to a gate, where the passengers were removed and placed on another aircraft at 6:15 p.m., Green said.



Flight 618 was towed to the gate. Passengers were put aboard a replacement aircraft at 6:30 p.m.



Green said the accident's cause is under investigation.

It looks like they might need some wing-walkers in that good ol' penalty box.

Continental Jet Wing Clips 2 Parked Planes At Newark Air




08-09-05 01:06 AM EST
NEWARK, N.J. (AP)--The wing of a taxiing Continental Airlines jet clipped two parked planes loaded with passengers at Newark Liberty International Airport Monday, officials confirmed.

No injuries were reported. One of the jets was reported to be inoperable and the two smaller flights, both awaiting takeoff, were canceled.

The incident occurred about 12:30 p.m. at an airport crowded by earlier weather-related delays.

The National Transportation Board is investigating, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Jim Peters said.

All three jets are operated by Continental. The one whose wing clipped the other two planes was a 737 bound for Phoenix, Az. The canceled regional flights were to Little Rock, Ark., and Columbus, Ohio.

The 737 with 150 people aboard was towed to a gate at Terminal C. Passengers on the other two jets were taken back to the terminal by bus, where they made other travel arrangements.

Sure, it had to be a brand-new airplane. It couldn't have been an ER! :D


NEWARK, N.J. (AP)--
The canceled regional flights were to Little Rock, Ark ...

When did they move Arkansas to the Northeast? I would have thought the Associated Press would have run a lead story on that!
