An American Airlines flight back to JFK after hitting a sign while starting

Flight 300 was leaving New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport on its way to Los Angeles International Airport when the plane hit a sign next to the runway, Portuguese spokesman Steve Coleman told CNN.

The sign "controls pilots as they go down the track," said Coleman. The plane struck the sign because it was a little outside the center during the start, Coleman said.

The plane took off at 8:40, but was back at JFK at 9:09. and taxied to the port, American Airlines said in a statement. There were 101 passengers and eight crew members on board, and no injuries were reported, the airline said.

"Americans switch aircraft 300 to a new aircraft, as our team considers the incident and inspects the plane," American Airlines said. "We will never disturb our customers' travel plans and we apologize for the inconvenience."
