WABC TV reports no one on board the ExpressJet  and Scandinavian Airlines jetliners was injured when they clipped between 7:30p.m. and 7:45 p.m. Both planes went back to their terminals following the incident.

A Scandinavian Airlines plane’s left wing clipped the tail of a United Airlines plane while they were on a taxiway. Photos and video from the scene showed a significant portion of the left wing jaggedly torn off.

Scandinavian Airlines Flight 908, bound for Oslo, Norway, was directly behind ExpressJet Flight 4226, destined for Nashville, Tenn., on the taxiway and was turning right to get onto another taxiway when its wing clipped the ExpressJet plane’s tail, officials said.

ExpressJet Airlines released a statement Wednesday night saying it is “working in coordination with officials to determine a cause.” All 31 passengers on the plane were re-accommodated, the airline said.

There were flight delays of up to 45 minutes immediately afterwards but flights are returning to normal.

The accident is being investigated.
