I just got notice from a reader that the flight he was on was just clipped by another Delta jet in snowy Newark EWR. I reached out to Delta and was told:
“After landing at Newark from Detroit, the wingtip of Delta flight 1409, an MD88, came into contact with a Boeing 767, while that aircraft was being towed. No injuries have been reported. There are 148 customers and five crew on DL1409; no customers were onboard the 767.” – Betsy Talton, Delta Air Lines
I asked what impact this will have on the two jets and the flights for tomorrow and was told “There is a spare available“. Here are some other photos of the conditions in EWR from RenesPoints reader:
Clearly the important thing is that no one was hurt but it seems two Delta jets will be out of service while they are checked / repaired. – Rene
UPDATE: View from the gate. It apparently too two hours to deplane.
