By  | 

The Boeing 737s heading to Edinburgh and Brussels ran into each other in the darkness at Dublin Airport early this morning. Passengers managed to take photos of the aftermath and revealed how the tip of one plane’s wing was missing. It was left lodged in the rear wing of the other plane. Passenger Andrea Cunningham, who was on the way to Edinburgh, said: ‘I thought the plane was going a little bit too fast before the plane was taking off. You could feel the plane tug and then we stopped.’ Ryanair has apologised for the disruption. An investigation is to be carried out by the Irish Air Accident Investigation Unit.

A Ryanair jet had the top of its wing torn off today after it collided with another of the company’s jets while they were both taxiing to the runway.
