The FAA says Houston Airport was forced to suspend all flights after a private jet departed “without authorization” and collided with another jet

A Houston airport temporarily suspended all flights Tuesday after two private jets collided on the tarmac, officials said.

The incident occurred around 3:30 p.m. CT when a twin-engine plane took off from the runway at William P. Hobby Airport “without permission” and collided with another twin-engine plane that was landing on the runway, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

No injuries were reported in the collision and it is unclear how many people were aboard the two planes, the FAA said.

According to the FAA, the departing aircraft was identified as a Hawker H25B, a business aircraft model, while the incoming flight was a Cessna C510 business class jet.

The two private jets “clipped their wings while moving around the airfield,” Hobby Airport said in a post on X.

The airport remained under a ground closure while crews worked to clear the debris, the post said. The airport said the debris had been cleared shortly after 7 p.m. and flight operations had resumed.

Hobby Airport is 7 miles from downtown Houston.

The incident remains under investigation by the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board.
