MINNEAPOLIS — Twin Cities airport officials say two planes have been damaged after their wings collided while preparing for takeoff.

An airport spokesman said the Delta Air Lines planes clipped their wings Wednesday night at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport after leaving their gates and getting ready to take off. A Delta 757 was bound for Los Angeles and an Embraer E175 was headed to Louisville, Ky.

The spokesman said there were no injuries. The planes returned to their gates and the flights were delayed.
