US Airways jet wing clips Boston deicing truck

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - US Airways says there are no injuries and only minor damage after one of its jets scraped a parked deicing truck with its wing tip at Boston's Logan International Airport.

Spokesman Todd Lehmacher says the Embraer 190 aircraft was taxiing to the deicing area at the time of the 5 p.m. Tuesday incident he called "very minor." Lehmacher said there appear to be scratches on the truck and on the plane's left wing tip.

Lehmacher said Flight 740 from Boston to Philadelphia had 99 passengers and four crew members. The plane returned to the gate. He said the airline expected all the passengers could be rebooked on other Tuesday night flights.

The Federal Aviation Administration said it's investigating. An airport spokesman referred comment to the airline.

The National Weather Service reported light snow at the time.
