  • Planes' wings clip each other at JFK in NY

The London-bound Virgin aircraft was delayed after it clipped wings with a passing EgyptAir plane as the two taxied on the runway.

Vicky and mum Margaret Maginnes, who she was travelling with, were then told they had been booked on to a British Airways flight which would take them to London and then Belfast.

The collision resulted in damage of the wings for both planes.

According to The Sun, affected passengers were taken back to the terminal and some were put up in a hotel for the night before continuing their journey.

"The girl on the other side said "half the wing was missing".

New England Patriots Place Martellus Bennett and Nate Ebner on Injured Reserve
Rapoport reported the tight end suffered a torn rotator cuff that caused Green Bay to waive him before New England picked him up. After a odd exit from the Green Bay Packers over his shoulder, Bennett signed very quickly with the Patriots a few weeks ago.

One image on social media show the wing-tip of the Virgin A330 completely shorn off, and being transported in the back of a pickup truck.

Both planes were returned to the airport terminal after the incident on Monday evening (27 November).

"Egypt Air Flight 986, a Boeing 777, was moving on Taxiway Kilo when its right wing touched the left wing of Virgin Atlantic Airlines Flight 4C, an Airbus A333.at about 7:45 p.m. [ET]", the FAA said in a statement.

Passengers aboard a Virgin Atlantic flight demanded free alcohol after their plane collided with another on the ground at John F Kennedy International Airport in NY, it has been claimed.
