Some flights were delayed at Tokyo’s Haneda airport on Saturday after two planes appeared to have collided on the ground near a taxiway, public broadcaster NHK reported, citing Japan’s transport ministry.

No injuries occurred, NHK said, but the incident led to the closure of one of four runways at the airport at about 11 a.m. (0200 GMT).

The broadcaster showed footage of Eva Airways and Thai Airways jets on the ground.

Part of the wing of the Thai Airways plane looked to be broken, and what appeared to be fragments could be seen near the runway.

Japan’s transport ministry did not respond immediately to a request for comment.
