A Sky West turbo-prop being pushed back from a gate clipped the wing of another Sky West plane, according to authorities.

Sky West Airlines Flight 6310, a Brazilia EMB 120 bound for Palm Springs, was being pushed back from Gate 71B of Terminal 7 around 8 p.m. when it clipped the wing of another plane of the same make and model, according to Albert Rodriguez of Los Angeles World Airports, the city agency which operates the airport.
