Aug-15 - Two United Airlines planes collided on the airfield at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport on Wednesday afternoon, with no injuries reported.

Around 4:20 pm, Flight 645 was taxiing from Gate C30 when the aircraft’s left wing clipped the left wing of Flight 2746, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. Federal Aviation Administration rep Tony Molinaro confirmed that both United planes sustained damage to their wings in the accident.

According to CBS Chicago, the Portland-bound Flight 645 had passengers on board and the incident ultimately delayed their trip by two hours. Flight 2746, bound for Cleveland, was eventually canceled.

The FAA is investigating, the Sun-Times reported.
