This 17-Year-Old's Invention Prevents Spread of Germs on Planes

  This 17-Year-Old's Invention Prevents Spread of Germs on Planes If it feels like you get sick every time you travel, there's a scientific reason for that: planes are prime breeding grounds for germs. With so many passengers sharing the same air for hours, chances are high that one traveler's bacteria will find its way to someone else. But according to 17-year-old Raymond Wang, this doesn't have to happen. To prevent people from sniffling through their trips, he's created a fan that reduces air-sharing – and, consequently, disease-catching – on planes.Typically, air circulates throughout plane cabins before it leaves.

Two planes collided on a taxiway at JFK International Airport Monday night at around 8:15 p.m. An Air France Airbus A-380 clipped the tail of a Comair flight — a regional carrier for Delta — which had just arrived from Boston.

Just about two minutes later, the pilot reported the plane hit with another plane and a wing was clipped. #PAPD ARFF Unit responded to Taxiway K, JFK , at 7:05 pm, Monday, 11/27/17. Brits try to blag free booze after planes collide on runway.

No injuries were reported but the aircraft involved sustained significant damage.

The Delta Boeing 737's left winglet struck the right horizontal stabilizer on the tail of the American Boeing 757, which was stationary at the time, according to an American spokesman.

"We had a big jolt, and he has a big scrape on his left wing," the pilot of the American flight was heard telling air traffic control over the radio via Forbes. "The Delta at our three o’clock, we are pretty sure his winglet, ran into us as he passed behind us."

Both airlines confirmed the incident occurred but weren't able to offer much detail as an investigation is likely.

"While on taxi, the wing of flight 2503 came in contact with the tail of another aircraft," Delta spokeswoman Betsy Talton said in a statement. "We’re sorry for the inconvenience to our customers."

Both planes were returned to their respective gates so passengers could deplane. The incident prompted a delay of about six hours for passengers on both flights. New aircraft were eventually brought in to operate the American flight to Dublin and the Delta flight to Seattle.

Citing an airline mechanic who examined photos of the damage, Forbes reported the American plane could be out of service for as long as a week. However, the Delta aircraft is likely to require less work.

Tuesday's collision comes less than two months after two planes clipped wings at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport and six months after a pair of planes collided at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, causing a fuel leak.
