Two Delta Air Lines aircraft collide in Boston

Two aircraft operated by Delta Air Lines have collided on the runway at Logan International Airport in Boston.

Minor damage was caused to both planes, with one minor injury reported following the incident late in Thursday.

Delta Flight 266, a Boeing 767 bound for Amsterdam, was being taxied onto the runway when its wing clipped the tail of Delta Connection flight 4904, a smaller regional jet bound for Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina.

The 767 was able to taxi back to the terminal under its own power.

Passengers on the regional jet were bussed back to the terminal, with the aircraft towed off the taxiway.

Following the collision one passenger complained of a possible neck injury and was taken to a local hospital as a precaution.

Local television showed several emergency vehicles surrounding the smaller plane after passengers were bussed back to the terminal.

Some 204 passengers and 11 crew were on board flight 266.

The Raleigh-bound flight had 74 passengers and three crew aboard.
