President Donald Trump’s personal 757 aircraft was involved in an accident at LaGuardia airport this morning.

At 8:35 AM, Sheltair, which provides aviation support services for private flights out of the New York City airport, was marshalling a Global Express private jet into  a parking space when the Global aircraft’s tail section stuck the edge of the wing of Trump’s plane, according to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

The Trump 757 was parked on the Sheltair ramp north of Terminal A at Taxiway E.

The Sheltair jet had three crew members and no passengers on board at the time of the accident.  No injuries were reported.

Both planes have wing damage, the Port Authority said.

Airport officials said that there is no impact to operations at LaGuardia.

The Port Authority said they would assist the Federal Aviation Administration with any investigation they might conduct.
