2 planes collide while taxiing at London's Heathrow Airport

Two planes collided while taxiing on a runway at London's Heathrow Airport Monday night. There were no injuries.

"It was a minor collision in between two planes who just clipped each other," a fire brigade spokesman said, speaking anonymously in line with the brigade's policy. "There was no fire, no injuries, no damage."

Sky News television, which cited a witness report, said one of two aircraft involved had lost an engine. The British Broadcasting Corp. identified the two planes as a British Airways Boeing 747 and a Sri Lankan Airlines Airbus A340.

It added that all the passengers were evacuated from the aircraft.

BAA PLC, which manages Heathrow, could not immediately be reached for comment.
