@fltadm US Airways and Republic are completely separate airlines.

Republic operates for both US Airways and Frontier Airlines, so Brian is kind of right. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic_Airlines

It may be strange, but it's pretty common for carriers to have their gates clustered together. They would likely end up de-icing in the same area as a result.

In other news that will be shockingly boring to everyone but me and maybe Dan, I can't begin to tell you how astoundingly rare it is to see my last name next to someone's name that isn't my own.

The incident was reported by the LA Times today as follows: " One plane,an Embraer E175 headed to Philadelphia,was on the de-icing platform when one of its REAR WINGS (!!!) was touched by a main wing of an Airbus A319 bound for Charlotte, NC which was lining up to be de-iced. The Embraer rear wing had some minor damage"
I thought they meant the horizontal stabilizer when they called it "rear wing" but as it was the contact was between both wing tips! They sure need better aviation reporters!!!!!!

I don't know what network it was, but the picture used for Republic was the old (pre-Northwest merger) one with "Herman" the goose logo.
Got a laugh out of that one.

In USAF if you "bump" wings you Lose Your Wings!. Wonder if the pilots still have theirs. No excuse for "tagging tips".

Hey, I'm available for that aviation reporter job!

@james corken: deicing pads are often over crowded during "events". These pilots where most likely under the "guidance" of a marshaler who didn't properly check the clearences between the two aircraft.

The pilot is always responsible for the movement his aircraft and damages that result from that movement.
JBReinertsen
That's correct James, but they also rely on the ground crew to help in tight situations. When the marshal is bringing in a plane, whether he's at the gate or at a different part of the airport, the flight crew uses them to help with the safe movement of the aircraft.

Hate to be picky John, but Herman is a Mallard Duck...
