The wing of the Boeing used by former President Donald Trump struck a plane parked at a Florida airport after it landed safely and taxied early Sunday morning, the Federal Aviation Administration said Tuesday.

It is unclear whether Trump, who held a campaign rally in Wildwood, New Jersey, on Saturday, was aboard his Boeing 757 when its fin struck the rear elevator of a VistaJet parked in West Palm Beach.

No injuries were reported in the collision.

The FAA notice of the incident, which occurred at 1:19 a.m. ET Sunday, gives the tail number of Trump’s plane as N757AF.

In a statement, the FAA said: “A private Boeing 757 landed safely at West Palm Beach International Airport at approximately 1:20 a.m. local time on Sunday, May 12. »

“During taxiing, its aileron struck a parked and unoccupied business jet,” the FAA said. “The incident occurred in an area of ​​the airport where the FAA does not direct aircraft. The FAA is investigating.”

CNBC requested comment from a Trump presidential campaign spokesperson on the incident.

Trump has a residence at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida, near the airport.

Trump, who is the presumptive Republican nominee, is on trial in New York state court on criminal hush money charges. He has pleaded not guilty in the case, where he is accused of falsifying business documents.

On Tuesday, Trump defense attorney Todd Blanche began cross-examining Trump’s former personal lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen, who is a key witness in the case.

Cohen paid porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 in late 2016 to buy her silence about an alleged sexual tryst with Trump a decade earlier. Cohen said he did so at Trump’s direction to prevent Daniels from going public with his story and damaging Trump’s presidential campaign that year.

Trump has denied having sex with Daniels and participating in the reward. He claimed the affair was politically motivated to harm his electoral chances.
