BOSTON -- A Southwest jet preparing to take off from Boston and fly its passengers to KCI clipped the wing of another plane on the runway as the Southwest pilot backed up the plane.
Southwest Flight 4552 was supposed to leave Boston Logan Airport at 6:58 a.m. CT.
The incident happened as the Southwest plane began to taxi out of the gate. The Jet Blue plane that it clipped was sitting out of the gate.
"All of the sudden there was kind of a quick jolt and it kind of felt like a jumping feel," said Adam Cowley, one of the 108 passengers. "We all kind of look around at each other wondering what just happened and I looked out the left window there in the exit aisle and saw that we had run into the tail wing of the Jet Blue plane next to us."
According to the FOX station in Boston, it wasn't clear if the Jet Blue plane received any damage.
Cowley said passengers received vouchers from Southwest and they are waiting for Southwest to reroute them.
The FAA is investigating.
