High winds caused a Southwest plane to collide with ground equipment at Denver International Airport shortly after landing Monday afternoon.
No one aboard Southwest Flight 203 from Baltimore was injured and all passengers were able to deplane safely, airport spokeswoman Emily Williams told Denver news stations KUSA9 and CBS4. She did not specify what piece of equipment the plane hit.
USA TODAY has reached out to representatives for Southwest and the airport.
According to airline tracking website FlightAware, winds had delayed departures at DIA by 15 to 30 minutes and had also affected inbound flights on Monday.
The TV station had reported that a high-wind warning was in effect until 10 p.m. MST on that evening.
However, by Tuesday morning, the winds at DIA had died down to 8 miles per hour and the airport’s arrivals and departures database showed most flights to be running on time.
