According to an airline spokesperson, no one was injured in the collision. Massport, the airport’s owner, said that United Airlines personnel had to use a tow tug to move one of the planes following the incident.
“As a tow tug was pushing it back from the gate at Boston Logan International Airport, the right wing of United Airlines Flight 515 struck the tail of United Airlines Flight 267 around 8:30 a.m. local time this morning,” the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said regarding Monday’s incident.
The FAA has already launched an investigation into the incident.
