Two commercial jets bump at New York's JFK

Two commercial jets have been damaged in the aviation equivalent of a fender-bender at New York's Kennedy airport.

A JetBlue Airways Corp. (JBLU) plane and an Air India Ltd. aircraft bumped into each other on a taxiway at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, causing some damage to the JetBlue plane’s rudder.

JetBlue Flight 145 had pushed back from the gate and its tow bar was being worked on when the Air India aircraft, en route to its gate, bumped the JetBlue craft, said JetBlue spokesman Alex Headrick. No one was injured in the incident, which occurred at 6:15 a.m. local time.

New York’s WABC-TV reported the Air India plane had some wingtip damage.
