Oops. Second hit for DL Shuttle 737-800. About a month or 2 ago a US DC-9 and a DL Shuttle pushed back into each other damaging both aircraft's rudders.

You would think a 767's wingtip would pass right over top a 737's wing because the 767 is much higher off the ground. I guess thats not so.

Maybe I assume that 767's flap down and possible hit 737's wingtip. I don't know. Hard to tell!! We should wait until tomorrow more detail about it.

Hey, I just checked in on this im from Boston heres what happend. (From WHDH.com)

Airplanes Clip Wings on Logan Runway

BOSTON -- Two airplanes preparing to depart Logan Airport on Monday morning clipped wings on the runway, slightly damaging each plane. Massport spokesperson Phil Orlandella said that no passengers on either flight were injured.
The two planes involved were an American Airlines 767 jet bound for Orlando and a 737 Delta Shuttle bound for New York. Passenger Michael Mokrzycki said the Delta Shuttle was stopped on the tarmac in Boston waiting to take off for LaGuardia airport when it was suddenly struck.

"You can see the tip of the right wing is sheared off on the American plane," Mokrzycki said.

Mokrzycki said he thought at first the plane was shaken by a strong gust of wind.

"Basically, we were sitting there and there was this crashing sound, and the plane shuttered left and right, and then it was over," he said.

"The captain got on the horn and said 'We had a little fender-bender."'

Orlandella said that the Delta Shuttle had pulled over on a runway to allow the American flight behind it to depart. The American plane's right wing clipped the Delta Shuttle's left horizontal stabilizer.

Both planes returned to their terminals to have the damage assessed. (AP)
