Events at Logan Airport – NBC Boston

Authorities are investigating two separate incidents that occurred at Logan International Airport in Boston on Friday.

One of the incidents is what is being called a low-speed collision between a United Airlines flight bound for Newark and a Delta flight bound for Detroit.

In the video recorded by passengers on one of the planes, you can see the United Airlines plane bumping into another parked Delta plane last night.

No injuries were reported, but one hundred and twenty-eight people had to get off the United flight. Massport officials say it happened in an airport parking area near the Hyatt hotel.

United Airlines released the following statement: “Friday evening, the wing of a United flight clipped the tail of another flight at Boston Logan International Airport. Customers on the United flight normally boarded at the gate and we will rebook them on other flights.”

Delta also released a statement about the incident.

“While no injuries have been reported to our customers or crew on Delta flight 1657, the aircraft came into contact with another aircraft while awaiting take-off clearance at Logan Airport. Delta teams are working to get customers to their final destinations this evening , and we apologize for the delay,” the airline said.

The second incident is the arrest of Patriots cornerback Jack Jones for allegedly trying to bring two guns in his carry-on luggage.

Massachusetts State Police said that while it does not confirm the employment of people it arrests, 25-year-old Jackie K. Jones of Arizona had been taken into custody after the weapons were found in his carry-on luggage. The Patriots confirmed that he is their player.

“We have been notified that Jack Jones was arrested at Logan Airport earlier today,” spokeswoman Stacey James said in a statement. “We are in the process of gathering more information and will not comment further at this time.”

Jones enters his second year at cornerback for the Patriots. Patriots minicamp practice was held this week at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough.
