Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford says no one was hurt but both American Airlines jets were damaged in the incident early Thursday.

American Airlines spokeswoman Andrea Huguely (HEWG'-lee) says the winglet of a Boeing 767 clipped the tail of an empty MD-80. The incident happened in a non-operational area where the airline provides charter service.

Both jets were taken out of service and the incident is under investigation.

She says a replacement American Airlines jet delivered the Dolphins to Miami around 7:30 a.m. EDT Thursday.

The Dolphins lost to the Dallas Cowboys 30-13 in their preseason finale Wednesday night.
