The winglet of the Boeing 767 clipped the tail of the American plane causing damage to both aircraft. Both jets were taken out of service to be inspected.
There is no further information on the damage to the planes.
A replacement American Airlines jet took the Dolphins team back to Miami and landed at 7:30 AM.
The 767 was also an American Airlines plane chartered by the team.
