Two Southwest Airlines aircrafts collided at Nashville International Airport

Two Southwest Airlines planes have collided on the tarmac of Nashville International Airport Saturday night.

An emailed statement from Southwest Airlines spokeswoman says the winglet of the St. Louis-bound Southwest Flight 1555 “came into contact” during pushback with the winglet of Southwest Flight 4580, headed for Atlanta. One injury was reported.

A photograph provided by a passenger on board the flight to Atlanta showed rainy weather and what appeared to be the top of the other plane’s fin clipped off.

Both EW planes returned to the gate and were taken out of service for evaluation. The Southwest flights are scheduled to continue using different aircraft.
