Overseas Network, January 19. According to a report by CBS on January 18, another accident occurred at JFK International Airport in New York that morning. A JetBlue Airways plane collided with another plane, but no one was injured in the accident.
JetBlue Flight 1603 was preparing to fly from JFK International Airport to another airport on the morning of the 18th when it made a “minor contact” with another parked, empty aircraft. JetBlue said in a statement. Passengers on Flight 1603 were transferred to another plane after the incident, but no one was injured. The Federal Aviation Administration said it would investigate the collision. The agency also confirmed other details of the crash, saying the two JetBlue planes involved were both Airbus 320s.
It is worth noting that just a few days before this collision incident, two planes nearly collided at JFK Airport. When an American Airlines Boeing 777 took off on the evening of the 13th, air traffic controllers noticed that a Delta Air Lines passenger plane was very close to it. The audio exposed by the social platform shows that the traffic controller panicked ly informed the Delta Airlines passenger plane on the radio that the takeoff was canceled. Ultimately, the Delta Air Lines plane canceled takeoff and returned to the gate. A Delta spokesman said in a statement that it will work with the Federal Aviation Administration to conduct a full review of the flight’s near miss.
