"Tango" would be that Airports (terminal) current "ATIS" - Alpha, Bravo... Tango... Zulu

Automatic terminal information service, or (ATIS), is a continuous broadcast of recorded aeronautical information in busier terminal areas, i.e. airports and their immediate surroundings. ATIS broadcasts contain essential information, such as current weather information, active runways, available approaches, and any other information required by the pilots, such as important NOTAMs. Pilots usually listen to an available ATIS broadcast before contacting the local control unit, which reduces the controllers' workload and relieves frequency congestion.

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.
