Mon, 09 Jun 2014 15:03:58 GMT — A Southwest Airlines jet, bound for Kansas City, was backing away from a gate when it struck a stationary JetBlue Airways plane at Boston's Logan International airport. No injuries were reported. An airport spokesman says the Boeing 737 was backing away from the gate just after 7 a.m. Monday when its left wingtip struck the right horizontal stabilizer of the JetBlue Airbus 320. No one was aboard the JetBlue aircraft. A Southwest spokesman says the 108 passengers aboard the 737 were placed on other flights. The jet was taken out of service. A picture posted on WFXT-TV's website showed a gouge out of the Southwest jet's wingtip, the vertical part at the end of the wing. Airport spokesman Matthew Brelis says Logan operations weren't affected. A Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman says the incident is under investigation.
