Calgary-based Westjet said it had unconfirmed reports of "minor injuries" in the incident, but that all 168 passengers and six crew members on board its plane were safe and accounted for. "There were no Sunwing crew or passengers onboard at the time of the incident", it said. The empty plane's wing burst into flames after the collision, causing panic among passengers on the WestJet aircraft.

Amid the screams, one person yelled: 'Calm down, that's not our plane on fire'.
