Ground collision of two planes Chicago sparks FAA investigation - milectoGround collision of two planes Chicago sparks FAA investigation - milecto

At Chicago O’Hare, one plane taxiing to take off hit another plane.

The Federal Aviation Administration reported on Monday that an accident happened at Chicago O’Hare International Airport on Sunday evening when a plane getting ready to take off crashed into another plane. Lucky for us, no accidents were recorded. Both of the planes involved were made by Boeing, and the FAA has said it will look into their actions.

Around 6:30 p.m. Central Time, the left wing tip of All Nippon Airways Flight 11, a Japanese airline’s Boeing 777, and the back of Delta Air Lines Flight 2122, a Boeing 717, crashed into each other. Notably, Boeing has been getting more attention lately because of recent technical problems and the fact that its Boeing 737 Max 9 model had to be grounded because of a problem with an emergency exit door.

The O’Hare episode, on the other hand, has not yet been linked to a problem with the way it was made, and the reason is still unknown. Boeing hasn’t said anything about the crash; instead, it’s sending questions to the companies concerned and the FAA.

Emma Johnson, a spokeswoman for Delta, said that the accident happened when an All Nippon Airways plane hit a Delta plane while it was stopping at a gate after coming from Detroit. Luckily, people got off the plane without any problems, and Delta’s repair workers are now looking at the plane.

Raymond Bongalon, a customer service worker for All Nippon Airways, said that the company could not give more information about what happened at the time. The planned flight, Flight 11, to Tokyo was cancelled because of a “aircraft inspection,” as shown by the airline’s flight status search.

Requests for feedback from the Chicago Department of Aviation were not answered right away.

The name of Delta Air Lines has been changed in one place in this story.
