Manchester Airport says two planes clipped each other when the wing of a Futura aircraft touched the tail of a Lufthansa jet.

A spokeswoman for the airport says both the Lufthansa Airbus A320 and the Futura Boeing 737 were taxiing on the runway when the collision occurred Tuesday afternoon.

Jenny Dunn says she is not exactly sure how the incident happened or whether there was any damage. Dunn says passengers were safely evacuated from the planes, which remain on the airfield.
