And next tonight, danger on the runway at two major american airports. Planes on the ground, heading to the runway, and then wings clipping each other. Abc's david kerley tonight on a growing problem and the called for a solution. Reporter: It's a tarmac turn that sliced into the tail of another jet. Got some serious tail damage. His tail is totaled. Reporter: Newark last night, a wide-body s.A.S. Jet making a turn, but its wing doesn't clear the united express jet in front of it. It was a big bang. We all kind of shook in our seats. Reporter: No one was hurt. But look at the damage to the two aircraft. And there was a another one in chicago a couple hours later. But these airport fender benders are not new. Remember that regional jet? Spun like a top at jfk two years ago. The national transportation board says it's time to use some technology on the tips of those bigger jets. Technology in many cars, cameras or sensors like the ones for backing up. The faa rejected that recommendation, citing a lack of injuries, the cost, and saying it will remain up to the pilot's eyes to make sure this doesn't happen again. David kerley, abc news, washington.
