(AP) Authorities say two airplanes have clipped each other while preparing to take off at New Jersey's Newark Liberty International Airport.


Federal Aviation Administration officials say no one was injured when the planes touched about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at one of the nation's busiest airports. A Scandinavian Airlines plane's left wing clipped the tail of a United Airlines plane while they were taxiing for departure.


Officials say Scandinavian Airlines Flight 908 was behind ExpressJet Flight 4226 on a taxiway and was turning right to get onto another taxiway when its wing clipped the ExpressJet plane's tail.


New York's WNBC-TV reports the ExpressJet plane was towed back to the gate and the Scandinavian Airlines plane taxied back to the gate, where passengers disembarked.


The Scandinavian Airlines plane was headed to Olso, Norway, the ExpressJet to Nashville, Tenn.


The accident is being investigated.
