Two planes waiting on the tarmac of Newark International Airport, after a near-miss on Wednesday night.
The two aircraft were forced back to their gates after Scandinavian Airlines Flight 908 came into contact with the left wing of United ExpressJet flight 4226 as both planes were taxiing for takeoff.
No injuries were reported, but the ExpressJet plane had to be towed back to its gate. The Scandinavian Airlines jet returned to its gate unassisted.
Officials are investigating to determine the cause of the incident.
