2 planes go bump in the night at N.Y.'s JFK Airport

NEW YORK -- Officials say a commercial jet waiting on the tarmac at New York City's Kennedy Airport was bumped from behind by another plane.

They say the mishap, just after 7 p.m. Sunday, involved a Royal Jordanian flight from Amman, Jordan, with 159 passengers and a Chautauqua Airlines flight from Charleston, South Carolina, operating under the Delta name.

No injuries were reported.

Both planes had arrived at the airport, officials of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which runs the airport, told CBS New York.

A spokesman for Republic Airways, owner of Chautauqua Airlines, says the jet was parked and waiting to approach the gate when the nose of the other aircraft hit the plane's tail.

He says the Chautauqua aircraft taxied to the gate under its own power and all 50 passengers and three crew members departed normally. Maintenance crews were reviewing the damage.

A message left with Royal Jordanian wasn't immediately returned.
