CLEAV­AGE OFTHE DAY

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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.
