    Two Ryanair jets were damaged when they collided on the ground at London's Stansted Airport.
    One plane was approaching the stand and the other was "pushing back" when the incident happened at about 06:45 BST, June 28, 2014

    The wing-tip of one plane and the tail-cone of another "made contact", said Ryanair spokesman Robin Kiely.

    No passengers or crew were injured, an airport spokesman confirmed. The Air Accident Investigation Board is investigating.

    Kinda sounds like the wingtip of the inbound jet may have goosed the tail of the pushbackered jet. Ooops, sorry. :rolleyes: Or did the pushback driver make a slightly tighter turn on the push, whoops?
