Two planes at Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) got a little too close for comfort on Wednesday.

Outside of BOS Terminal A, two Delta aircraft — a Boeing 767 and an Airbus A330 — got close enough to clip wings. According to officials, no one was on board either of the aircraft at the time of the collision, as one was being repositioned. No one was injured.

“While repositioning an empty aircraft at Boston Logan International Airport, a wingtip made contact with a wingtip of another aircraft that also had no customers on board,” a Delta spokesperson said.

The collision resulted in a response by emergency vehicles, including fire trucks. However, experts found no significant damage.

As a result of the collision, Delta Flight 1652 from BOS to Detroit (DTW) was delayed in getting to its gate.
