Airliner leaving Logan gate scrapes neighbor

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating a minor accident involving a Southwest Airlines jet and a parked JetBlue aircraft at Logan International Airport that tore a piece from one of the departing plane’s wings Monday morning.

Flight 4552 was pushing back from the gate just after 7 a.m. when its left winglet clipped the right horizontal stabilizer of a JetBlue A-320 aircraft sitting at a neighboring gate, officials said.
