ABC News 7 quotes one of the passengers on flight UA2157 Rebecca Blum, saying, "I felt a jolt ... looked outside and saw as clear as day the wing of a larger plane had clipped our wing. Definitely heard it. Felt it mildly, I would say, but more the noise. I think we were thinking, what was that?"

While Simple Flying quotes authorities saying, "The United Flight 2135 was struck by a Boeing 787, a Dreamliner, that arrived from Johannesburg, South Africa, earlier in the morning. The much larger plane was being relocated by a tug when it made contact with the smaller Boeing 757, parked at the gate." Such incidents of plane collisions while at the airport have been on the rise, with multiple incidents on Delta, America, and Jetblue aircraft.
