Air Canada A320 wingtip damaged by another plane while on LaGuardia taxiway

Airport officials in New York say an Air Canada flight that had just landed at the city’s LaGuardia Airport late Monday afternoon was damaged as it sat on the taxiway by another passing plane. Rudy King, spokesperson for the Port Authority New York and New Jersey, says the Air Canada jet was stationary on the taxiway when an American Eagle plane operated by Republic Airlines that was attempting to turn clipped its wing. Air Canada spokesperson Angela Mah says the A320 jet was arriving from Toronto with 142 passengers on board who all disembarked normally, but that the aircraft is now out of service. King says one woman on board the American Eagle flight suffered a neck and back injury. The Federal Aviation Administration plans to investigate the mishap, which unfolded around 5:15 p.m. ET. The agency said the incident involved Air Canada Flight 716 from Toronto, and Republic Airline Flight 4589 from St. Louis. Source
