Airplane Southwest, Frontier airliners clip wings at Phoenix airport

Two airliners clipped wings at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport Thursday night, reports CBS Phoenix affiliate KPHO-TV.

The airport says a Frontier Airlines plane was pushing back from a gate when it “clipped the wings” of a Southwest Airlines aircraft that was taxiing to a gate.

Very same type of thing happened here in the Twin Cities some years ago. A plane being pushed back had its wing impact the front portion of the pilots' cabin and windshield of an MD-80. Both planes were Northwest, IIRC.

I remember driving by the cargo area a few months later, and seeing that the MD-80 was being scrapped besides the cargo building.
