Default 767 & CRJ Collide at Logan Intl. Airport

(Taken from Planes Collide On Runway At Logan Airport CBS Boston)
BOSTON (CBS) – An investigation was underway after two jets collided on a taxiway at Logan Airport around 7:30 on Thursday night.

The wing of a Delta jet clipped the tail of an aircraft that provides regional air service for the carrier while both planes were on the taxiway awaiting their instructions for takeoff.

A Massport spokesman says flight 266 to Raleigh-Durham was sitting in front of flight 266 Boston to Amsterdam when the collission occurred, the left wing of the 767 hitting the tail of the much smaller plane.

One female passenger complaining of neck pain was transported to the hospital as a precaution. The rest of the passengers were bussed to the terminal while Delta helped them make arrangements for other flights.

No other flights were disrupted as planes were moved to other taxiways. There were 204 passengers on the flight to Amsterdam, and 74 on the flight to Raleigh.

The passengers that were headed to Raleigh were being put up in hotels for the night.

The FAA and the NTSB will now investigate, interviewing the Delta crews, passengers, and listening to the audiotapes.

Delta released the following statement about the incident:

“While taxiing out for departure, the wing from Flight 266 from Boston to Amsterdam made contact with the vertical stabilizer of ASA Flight 4904, also on departure from Boston to Raleigh-Durham. Flight 266 returned to the gate and passengers deplaned without incident. Passengers on ASA Flight 4904 deplaned and were transported by bus to the terminal. Both aircraft have been removed from service for inspections and passengers are currently being reacommodated on other aircraft.”

It would seem both Boeing and Airbus are worried Canadair may try to take some of their market share in the future.

And thank god it also didn't collide with an Antonov An-225 with 7,000 kids heading to a "Adopt-a-Kitten" convention in Tajikastan. And thank god the wreckage from that collision didn't land on a secret Al Qaida cache of rocket launchers which then exploded and caught on fire a B-2 on a bombing run, which then flew into the Fukushima Nuclear Powerplant, which then exploded...releasing thousands of tons of radioactive fallout, which killed the killer whales, which prayed on the seals that ate the fish that overpopulated the Ocean, causing it to rise 1/4 of an inch, which in turn caused the Sausalito Tsunami Alarm to go off which caused the fisherman to text his wife that a tsunami was happening, which caused the wife to panic and jump from her table, spilling my beer.

THANK GOD!

I thought the An-225 could only cram in 6,754 kids. Have they made it bigger?

I only said it because at first I thought the 767 was taking off until I read the article.
