Two United 777 Jets Hit Wingtips at Washington’s Dulles Airport

Jan. 24 (Bloomberg) -- A United Continental Holdings Inc. jet taxiing to its gate at Washington’s Dulles International Airport today clipped the wing of an aircraft parked nearby.

Flight 951, a Boeing Co. 777 that seats about 250 passengers, had just arrived from Brussels when the 2:15 p.m. incident occurred, Jennifer Dohm, a spokeswoman for the Chicago-based carrier, said in an e-mailed message.

Passengers and crew left the jet so maintenance workers could evaluate both aircraft for damage. There weren’t any passengers on board the parked plane, also a United 777, at an adjacent gate, she said.

No injuries were reported, Dohm said.
