A private chartered plane carrying the Dixie Chicks and their crew from Dublin, Ireland to Glasgow, Scotland on Friday (September 19) clipped the side of a terminal building at the Glasgow Airport. According to a statement from the trio’s publicist, the plane had already landed and was traveling at a very slow speed when a member of the airport’s ground crew directed it in at a bad angle. No one was hurt in the mishap, and the Chicks intended to perform their scheduled concert in Glasgow Friday evening.
The group issued a statement shortly after the incident, saying, “There was a minor accident at the Glasgow airport and we are fine.” A spokesperson for the airport confirmed that both the building and tip of the plane’s wing sustained minimal damage.
The Dixie Chicks are on their Top Of The World tour, which wraps up on October 4 in Sydney, Australia.
The trio are the subject of a new television special called VH1 All Access Spotlight: The Dixie Chicks. The cable network will take fans backstage on the group’s current tour, as well as behind the scenes as the Dixie Chicks shoot their new video, “Top Of The World.” VH1 All Access Spotlight: The Dixie Chicks will air on September 22 at 9 p.m. ET, immediately followed by the U.S. premiere of the new video.
