WASHINGTON, Aug. 10 (UPI) -- A Lufthansa jetliner's wing clipped the tail of a United Express commuter plane on a taxiway at Washington Dulles International Airport Friday, officials said.
WJLA-TV, Washington, reported there were no injuries as a result of the accident, which Metropolitan Washington Airports representative Rob Yingling said occurred near the airport's A gates.
The National Transportation Safety Board was investigating.
A spokesman for Pinnacle Airlines, the parent company of Colgan Air, said the Lufthansa Airbus A330 clipped the tail of a Bombardier Q400, which Colgan was operating as United Express Flight 3912 from Pittsburgh to Dulles, while taxiing to the gate.
The Colgan aircraft had 68 passengers aboard and the Lufthansa plane had 183 passengers, the TV station said.
The Lufthansa flight's origin and destination were not reported.
