Hey, how dare you imply that such an incident occurred? BOTH UNITED AIRLINES PLANES! This CANNOT be! Where did you find such news...CNN, FOX news or Chinese / North Korean propaganda channels?

Mighty cute kunta.

A passing mention on CNN this afternoon but nothing really much came forth after that.

Tongkat was right, the incident did happened. Apparently 2 USAir planes had a similar touching of wings at Reagan National on Feb 17th.
