INCIDENT | Two Boeing Jets Collided On The Ground at O'Hare International

On the evening of January 14, 2024, two Boeing planes were involved in a ground collision at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport. The incident sparked an investigation by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The Incident

The collision occurred when a plane from All Nippon Airways (ANA), a Japanese airline, was taxiing for departure. The left wing tip of Flight 11, a Boeing 777, clipped the rear of Delta Air Lines Flight 2122. The Delta Airlines aircraft was a Boeing 717. The incident took place around 6:30 p.m. Central Time. The collision occurred in an area that was not under traffic control. No injuries were reported.


Aftermath and Investigation

Following the incident, the Delta plane underwent an inspection by airline mechanics. Passengers on the ANA flight deplaned safely after the incident. The airline's flight status search indicated that Flight 11, bound for Tokyo, was canceled due to "aircraft inspection". The FAA has launched an investigation into the incident. It is not immediately clear what caused the incident and whether it was related to a manufacturing flaw.

Boeing Under Scrutiny

This incident comes at a time when American aircraft manufacturer Boeing faces increasing scrutiny following a series of mechanical failures. Just last week, its Boeing 737 Max 9 model was grounded after an emergency exit door failed, causing an emergency landing. Boeing representatives did not provide a comment on Monday regarding the collision at O'Hare and instead directed The Associated Press to speak with the airlines involved and the FAA.
