A cargo jet and a United passenger plane clip each other on the ground at O'Hare, but no one is hurt.

Two planes clipped each other on the O’Hare tarmac Saturday night, but no one was hurt.

It happened when a United Airlines Express jet was pulling into the gate around 9:15 p.m. An Atlas cargo plane’s wing clipped the tail of the passenger jet.

A United Airlines spokesman said the impact was so slight, the 27 passengers and crew onboard didn’t realize what happened. All got off the plane safely.

Officials are investigating, but are not sure if the snow played a part in the accident.

Mesa is partnered with United.
