Two Southwest Airlines planes are out of service after colliding on the tarmac of Nashville International Airport.

According to a spokesperson for the airline, on Saturday, two Southwest planes were pushing back from the gate at Nashville International Airport, one headed to St. Louis and the other to Atlanta. They backed into each other, with one clipping the winglet of the other.


No injuries were recorded and, according to the release, the aircraft were able to return to the gates on their own.

The aircraft were taken out of service for evaluation, and passengers have been placed on other aircraft to proceed to their destinations, the airline said. The Southwest flights will continue to the scheduled destinations using new planes.
