Authorities at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport say two planes clipped wings on the ground.

Metropolitan Airports Commission spokesman Patrick Hogan says no one was injured in the accident Sunday afternoon.

One Northwest Airlines Airbus A330 had just landed and was taxiing to the gate area. It clipped the wing of another plane of the same type at a neighboring gate.

Hogan says there were no passengers on the plane sitting at the gate. Both planes had some damage to the wing tips.
