The Winnipeg Airports Authority told Global News the incident happened around 3:30 p.m. Sunday and that two investigators from the TSB are on the way to the airport to look further into the collision.

 

They said a fuel spill occurred as a result, but was cleaned up shortly after.

Tyler MacAfee , a spokesperson for James Richardson International Airport says,

“Because it all happened on the private aircraft side of the airport, we don’t have the same visibility as we would if they were planes in our terminal or something like that. That’s why the TSB comes in and they assess the situation and decide where they’re going to go from there. ”

The TSB investigates marine, pipeline, railway and aviation transportation occurrences.
