Fuel Truck Clips Airplane at PHL

A scare at the airport this morning after a fuel truck clipped a plane.

The fuel truck, with Atlantic written on the side, struck a parked US Airways plane around 6 a.m. at Philadelphia International Airport’s Terminal F, according to airport spokeswoman Victoria Lupica.

No one was on the plane at the time.

There were no reports of injuries or any major damage to the plane. There also wasn't any report of a fuel spill.

More than 700 flights were set to fly in and out of the airport Thursday. Lupica said the incident didn't appear to cause any delays to those flights.
