NEW YORK (WABC) — A jet suffered wingtip damage after another plane hit it at LaGuardia Airport Sunday morning, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.
Officials say a JetBlue plane clipped the right wingtip of a Southwest jet as it pushed back from a gate around 9:40 a.m.
There were only passengers on the JetBlue flight and no injuries, the agency said.
