Planes Clip Each Other at NC Airport

U.S. Airways had to cancel two of its flights after the planes clipped each other as they taxied at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport.

The airline told multiple media outlets the two planes were heading to the runway about 4 p.m. Saturday when the wing of one of the aircraft clipped the tail of the other plane.

The incident caused only minor damage and no injuries were reported, but US Air says it took both planes out of service as a precaution.

One plane with about 280 passengers was heading to Frankfurt, Germany, while the other plane and its 170 passengers were going to San Francisco.
