News Plane incidents — 28 November 2017

Taking off is a delicate part of the experience of flying, so we can only imagine the shock among passengers of a London-bound Virgin Atlantic plane when they discovered their aircraft had a missing wingtip.

An EgyptAir 777 reportedly clipped the wing of a Virgin Atlantic A330 at JFK airport, New York, as it was taxiing on the runway, moments before takeoff.

In a statement to the Evening Standard, Virgin Atlantic said: “Our VS4 flight from New York to London Heathrow sustained damage to the wingtip whilst taxiing to the runway at JFK airport yesterday (27 November).

“Safety is always our priority, and all passengers and crew disembarked the aircraft as normal. We’re arranging alternate travel for affected customers to enable them to continue their journeys as soon as possible, and we would like to thank them for their understanding during the delay.”
