Two planes collided at Boston airport

Two JetBlue aircraft were involved in an accident at Boston’s Logan International Airport, AviationSource News reports.

The collision is believed to have occurred when one aircraft entered a de-icing area and struck another aircraft with its tail. According to RadarBox.com, two aircraft were involved in this incident: N2157J and N956JT.

“The left wing of JetBlue Flight 777, an Airbus A321neo, struck the right horizontal stabilizer of JetBlue Flight 551, an Airbus A321, at approximately 6:40 a.m. local time on Thursday, February 8, while landing on a de-icing pad at Boston Logan International Airport,” the FAA said.

Flight 777 was scheduled to fly to Las Vegas and Flight 551 was scheduled to fly to Orlando. Photos circulating online show the extent of the damage. It is unclear how long it will take to repair both planes so they can fly commercially again.
