PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Two airliners are out of commission tonight at Dulles International Airport near Washington after a minor collision on the runway.

One of those planes was a United Express commuter plane out of Pittsburgh.

Its tail section was clipped by a larger jet’s wing.

An airport spokesman says the planes were probably moving only a few miles an hour when they made contact.

No one was hurt.
