Two planes make contact at Boston airport.

Authorities are investigating after a United Airlines plane clipped the tail of a parked Delta passenger jet at Logan Airport in Boston on Friday.

The low-speed collision, captured on video by a passenger, occurred as the United Airlines Flight 369 was preparing to take-off for Newark Airport at about 7.20pm.

The FAA said the Boeing 737’s left wingtip came into contact with the tail of Delta Air Lines Flight 1657, an Airbus A321.

No injuries were reported, and 128 passengers aboard the United flight had to disembark and were booked on to other flights.

Kathleen Dunn, a passenger on a separate flight, posted footage of the incident to Twitter and said her flight was delayed from landing for 40 minutes.

She said fire police and EMTs swarmed the airport after the collision.
