Two Delta planes "clipped wings" on the tarmac at O'Hare International Airport on Friday night, officials said.

The incident happened at about 7:30 p.m., said Karen Pride with Chicago's Department of Aviation.

"I was sitting in the exit row and they just bumped into each other," said a passenger, Michelle, who declined to give her last name. "It wasn't a big deal.  Nothing was unsafe."

The planes were Delta flight No. 2207 to Minneapolis and flight No. 1777 to Atlanta said airlines spokeswoman Chris Kelly Singley.

Another aircraft was found to get the Minneapolis-bound passengers on their way.  Other arrangements were being made to accomodate the travelers bound for Atlanta, said Kelly Singley.

The planes involved in the mishap were being inspected for damage by airline crews.

No injuries were reported.
