A passenger jet arriving at San Francisco International Airport got too close to the terminal hitting the building with its wing tip and causing minor damage.
Aer Lingus Airbus A330-300 (reg. EI-GAJ) from Dublin was being towed to gate G91 when the tractor crew misjudged the turn and the wing clipped a concrete pillar.
The spokesman said there was paint damage to the Airbus A330 wing but a maintenance crew would make a full inspection of the wing.
There were no injuries to anyone on board but the inspection may impact any departing flights on the airline, the SFO spokesman said.
Passengers were able to de-board the plane about an hour after the incident.
Return flight #EI146 to Dublin was canceled.
