NEW YORK — A Virgin Atlantic flight from JFK to London crashed into a blast fence Saturday morning.
According to Port Authority, a plane was being pushed back from the gate when its wing struck the blast fence 8:30 a.m. Saturday.
A passenger on the plane, on his way home to London, told PIX11 “it looks like ground staff weren’t paying attention.”
The passenger said the “plane shuddered as it hit the wall, but we’re fine.”
Supermodel Bella Hadid was apparently on the flight also.
A Virgin Atlantic spokesperson said the crash was a cause of “a miscalculation by the tug.”
Port Authority says no passengers were injured in the crash. The passengers disembarked the plane and boarded a bus back to the terminal, according to Port Authority.
