"ROMULUS (WWJ) Two airplanes collided at Detroit Metro Airport while headed for de-icing on a bitterly cold morning.

The incident happened around 6 a.m. Wednesday when the wing of an American Airlines plane clipped the tail of a Southwest Airlines jet while on the taxiway. Temperatures were around 25 degrees."

The same reporter who said "bitterly cold" also said it happened "on the
tarmac".

Maybe one of the aircraft was a twin engine Piper Cub.

Last October, I found a very tiny kitten at the airport. She was crying because she was both hungry and cold. I scooped her up and got her to a shelter, where she is being cared for until she's old enough to be spayed and adopted.



Her name is Tarmac.
