This Wednesday morning, the crash between two planes was recorded at the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, with no reported victims or injuries from the incident so far.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reported that the impact occurred when a JetBlue flight from New York to Puerto Rico collided with another plane in the gate area. This is the second time in less than a week that two planes have experienced an unusual incident at this airport.

This is the second incident in a week that the FAA is investigating at the John F. Kenendy airport, after last Friday two planes preparing for takeoff were close to colliding when an American Airlines aircraft crossed the runway at the moment it another from Delta was accelerating for takeoff.

Until now, according to the information that has been made public, Delta Flight 1943 aborted its takeoff when air traffic controllers warned it that an aircraft was entering the runway. It was so that he managed to stop about a thousand feet (about 300 meters ) from the other device.

The Delta flight, with 154 passengers on board, was bound for Santo Domingo and was delayed until the next day, while the American Airlines flight, headed for London, took off that same night without any major problems.
