Delta, United aircraft clip wings at Burbank airport

A Delta flight clipped the wing of a United Airlines aircraft after landing at Hollywood Burbank Airport on Tuesday night.

SkyWest flight 4673, operating as a Delta Connection flight, had just landed from Salt Lake City and was taxiing to gate B1 when it struck the wing of the empty United plane parked at B2, KTLA reported. No injuries were reported.

“After a routine landing in Burbank, California, a wingtip of SkyWest flight 4673, operating as Delta Connection from Salt Lake City to Burbank made contact with another aircraft wingtip while taxiing to the gate,” Delta said in a statement. “There were no injuries and all 42 passengers deplaned normally through the main cabin door.”
