A Delta Air Lines plane bound for Atlanta hit a pole while taxiing at Nashville International Airport on Thursday morning.
After the plane’s wing struck the pole, the 141 passengers on Delta flight 1066 disembarked from the MD-88 aircraft and were taken back to the terminal by bus, according to Delta spokesman Morgan Durrant. Some passengers were rebooked on other flights out of Nashville, and Delta sent a replacement aircraft to transport remaining passengers to Atlanta late Thursday afternoon.
Delta said it apologizes to customers and is investigating the incident. The airline said no injuries were reported.
