2 Southwest Planes Collide On Tarmac At Nashville Airport



Two Southwest Airlines flights collided on Saturday night while pushing back from their respective port at Nashville International Airport. The airline told the AP in a statement that no injuries were reported in the accident, but post-incident pictures appear to show damage as a result of at least one of the two jets.

Southwestern spokeswoman Michelle Agnew told the AP that the wing of Southwest Flight 1555, which had been tied to St. Louis, "came into contact" with Winglet of Southwest Flight 4580, which had planned to fly to Atlanta. (A wing is the small upward part of the end of a plane's wings.)

A photograph taken by a passenger aboard the Atlanta-bound aircraft appeared to show the other plane's damaged wing after the collision. The tip of the wiggle ̵

This picture taken by a passenger aboard a Southwest Airlines flight to Atlanta this Saturday appears to show the damage caused by another Southwest Airlines flight after the two jet crashes.

The planes could come back to the gates "under their own power" and were taken out of service to be considered, Agnew said.

Passengers on the two planes were put on other aircraft to continue their planned destinations, Reported CNN.
