MIAMI (AP) – Authorities say a commercial airliner clipped another on the ground near a gate at Miami International Airport, but no one was injured among hundreds aboard the two aircraft.
Airport spokesman Marc Henderson told The Miami Herald (

Officials say an Aerolineas Argentinas Airbus that arrived with 240 passengers apparently struck an Air France 777-300 plane still at the gate and preparing to depart with 350 passengers for Paris.
Passengers arriving from Argentina disembarked. It wasn’t clear if the Paris-bound passengers would be put on another flight.
Several flights were delayed. The National Transportation Safety Board was investigating.
Last month, two commercial aircraft were damaged in a small collision at Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport.
