TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Former President Donald Trump’s Boeing 757 clipped a parked private jet at a Florida airport over the weekend, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

The FAA said the incident happened Sunday at the West Palm Beach International Airport.

A notice from the agency reads: “AIRCRAFT TAXIING AND WINGLET STRUCK THE REAR ELEVATOR OF A PARKED VISTAJET.”

The notice lists the plane’s registration number as N757AF. FAA registration records show the plane is registered to DJT Operations I LLC. The registration number is also clearly visible on the side of Trump’s plane.

“A privately owned Boeing 757 landed safely at West Palm Beach International Airport around 1:20 a.m. local time on Sunday, May 12,” an FAA spokesperson told Nexstar’s WFLA in a statement. “While taxiing, its winglet contacted a parked and unoccupied corporate jet. The incident occurred in an area of the airport where the FAA does not direct aircraft.”

No injuries were reported in the incident. The report lists that the damage is unknown.

It’s unclear if Trump was on the plane.

The FAA continues to investigate the incident.

Trump is currently on trial in Manhattan facing charges that he falsified business documents to cover up hush money payments made to adult film star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 election.
