Incident: Two JetBlue Aircraft Collide on Ground in Boston…
N956JT on the other hand, is a 8.4 year old Airbus A321ceo that was delivered to the U.S carrier back in October 2015.
It is understood that the ground collision at Boston came about when one aircraft was entering the de-icing pad when it came into contact with the tail of another aircraft, as per the airline.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said the following on the incident:
“JetBlue Flight 777, an Airbus A321neo’s left winglet struck the right horizontal stabilizer of JetBlue Flight 551, an Airbus A321, around 6:40 a.m., local time on Thursday, February 8, while on the deicing pad at Boston Logan International Airport.”
Flight 777 was expected to depart to Las Vegas, whilst Flight 551 was expected to head down to Orlando.
At this stage, the images above show the extent of the damage, with all eyes on how long this will take to repair both aircraft so then they can get airworthy and back into commercial service again.
