Ryanair jets collide in airport drama
CLEAVAGE OFTHE DAY
TWO Ryanair planes have clipped each other on the runways at Dublin Airport yesterday.
No injuries were reported after the “winglet” of one of the Boeing 737 planes scraped against the tail of the other, a Ryanair spokeswoman said.
She added: “Two of our aircraft were taxiing slowly to the runway at Dublin Airport this morning.
“The winglet of one aircraft appears to have scraped the tail of the other. There was no impact on customers on board.”
Ryanair apologised to its customers for any inconvenience.
The Irish Aviation Authority confirmed it was investigating an incident involving two aircraft, during which emergency services attended the scene.
“The Air Accident Investigation Unit of the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport has been notified and will conduct a further investigation,” said a spokesman.
