None hurt when plane clips fence at O’Hare pushing from gate

No one was hurt when an airplane clipped a fence at O’Hare while pushing back from a gate Tuesday evening.

Frontier Airlines Flight 1343 was scheduled to depart at 6:20 p.m. for Washington, D.C., but returned to the gate after a wing tip made contact with the fence, airline spokesman Todd Lemacher said.

No one was hurt, and maintenance crews were evaluating the plane Tuesday evening, he said.
