TOKYO (The Japan News/ANN): The wings of two Japan Airlines (JAL) planes collided at Haneda Airport on Thursday morning, resulting in the cancellation of one flight to Hokkaido.

The airlines said the left wing tip of JAL Flight 503, with 328 passengers and crew on board, had hit the right wing tip of another JAL plane at Terminal 1 of the airport in Tokyo at around 7.30am.

No injuries were reported, but Flight 503, which was departing for New Chitose Airport that serves Hokkaido’s capital Sapporo, was cancelled.

Flight 503 had begun backing out of its parking spot at Terminal 1 when its wing struck that of a plane which was moving forward into the adjacent parking spot.

Both aircraft are Airbus A350-900s.
