Not sure if this has made the boards yet but NW and a UA Express plane made sometype of contact with each other in MHT this am. Nothing serious but I believe it cancelled both of there flights, not other details about what happened atm.

Guess so. It was NW811 supposed to leave at 6:15am, but they cancelled it due to 'aircraft maintenance.' I wonder how bad it could have been. Probably a wing clip.

I believe the UA express flight was an ACA plane to IAD

NW plane clipped the tail/rudder of the UA plane while under power on the taxi out. UA plane was parked. Damage to the NW wingtip.


Arguing with a pilot is like mudwrestling a pig. After awhile you begin to think the pig likes it.

Actually pretty common. Wing tips can be tought to judge and then add a winglet..!! I've easly repaired a dozen wingtip strikes in my days as a floor mechanic.

The UEX plane was one of ours ( ACA ). They were holding position, and the MHT tower cleard the NW319 around the CRJ. NW proceeded to remove a 12"x12" piece of the CRJ's rudder. The 319 was basically un-scathed, but required inspections were obviously due. Our RJ required a new rudder, which by this time should be installed and the jet should be flying. The FAA is looking into the incident, primarily the towers decision to allow the 319 to move around the RJ, and the NW crews decision to do so.
