The Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement on Tuesday that a privately owned 757 contacted a parked and unoccupied corporate jet on Sunday. The FAA statement did not identify the plane as belonging to Trump.

The incident occurred in an area of the airport where the FAA does not direct aircraft, the agency said, adding that it is investigating.

The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Trump held a rally in Wildwood, New Jersey, on Saturday. The incident occurred after the plane landed at the West Palm Beach airport at 1.20am on Sunday.
