If it was not bad enough that the Dolphins got clipped by the Dallas Cowboys 30-13 in their preseason finale Wednesday night.
The American Airlines plane chartered by the Miami Dolphins clipped a parked plane as it prepared to take off from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.
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 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 Miami Dolphins just completed one of their worst preseasons in team history. For only the 3rd time in franchise history, the Dolphins failed to win a preseason game. The crazy thing is, the losses aren’t THAT terrible, but it’s how they Dolphins have looked that is troubling. Last night, in the 1st quarter, the [...]
I don’t know if it is the curse of Hard Knocks or the Dolphins are just that bad. At the beginning of training camp I thought they could be a sleeper team.
By the end of the training of camp, I am thinking they could be the worst team in the league.
They just have bad karma surrounding them.
This is not real life…team plane backed into another plane right before take...
In what was probably the best cheerleader showdown of the preseason, on August 10th the Dolphins took on the Buccaneers. Which means that the Dolphins cheerleaders and the Bucs cheerleaders were in the same building doing their thing on the same field. That to me is an event.
Boy is it hard to determine which squad is better. The fun however, is in watching them and not...
Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten was on the practice field in pads and hopeful that he will be able to play in the season opener.
Saturday's practice was the first time Witten had been in pads since lacerating his spleen in the preseason opener on Aug. 13. He says it felt good to put the pads on and that he just ran around and caught some passes at practice.
NFL teams have until 9 p.m. this evening to trim their rosters to 53 players. Hundreds of players will be released this afternoon but could the Miami Dolphins be looking at adding a wide receiver via trade? Miami has struggled this preseason to find a legitimate number one receiver. This week Miami worked out a trio of receivers.
Miami brought in veteran Donte Stallworth who was...

Lance Dunbar was stressing all day about getting on the field in the preseason finale for the Dallas Cowboys.
When the Cowboys begin their preparations in earnest for Wednesdays regular-season opener at the New York Giants, Mike Jenkins can be on the practice field.
Jenkins was removed from the physically unable to perform list Wednesday, clearing the way for him to possibly play against the Giants despite missing the entire offseason, training camp and four preseason games because of...
It’s the most exciting time of the year, the start of football, and I don’t mean the boring preseason stuff, but the real stuff.
Wednesday, the defending Super Bowl champions’ New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys kick of the 2012 NFL season. This game has what we all want to see, a rivalry, the champions of the year before, and last, but not least two teams that hate each...
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones can’t help but agree with Giants linebacker/defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka that they’ve been “whupping” the Cowboys over the past few seasons.
“I agree with him, and the only thing I’m saying is that I’ll never get used to it,” Jones told USA Today Sports.
“It is tough (being) on the outside looking in,” Jones said of the...
