FAA investigating minor collision of two planes at Chicago airport

The Federal Aviation Administration is looking into a collision at Chicago O’Hare International Airport over the weekend.

The collision took place Sunday evening when an All Nippon Airways plane, a Boeing 777, was on the ground preparing for takeoff when its left wing struck the stabilizer of a Delta Air Lines plane, a Boeing 717. The collision occurred in an area not under air traffic control, according to the FAA.

No injuries were reported from the incident.

The collision occurred shortly after another ANA plane was forced to turn back to its departure airport in Japan after a crack was discovered in the Boeing 737’s cockpit window. A spokesperson for the airline said the crack did not affect the flight’s control of pressurization.
