Passengers at Logan International Airport got quite the surprise when their planes collided on the ground Aug. 12.
Photos appear to show damage to the wing of a Delta plane that was struck by another while both were at the gates.
Passengers at Logan International Airport were involved in a low-speed collision, but no one was injured, according to NBC Boston.
“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.”
According to NBC Boston, the Arias family was heading home after their son played in Cooperstown All-Star Village tournaments in New York before stopping 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.”
A Delta spokesperson offered an apology to customers after passengers at Logan International Airport went on a bumpy ride.
“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.”
