BOSTON (CBS) – Crews used a crane to move a Southwest jet that became disabled on a taxiway at Logan Airport Wednesday morning.

The airport said there was no impact to operations at this time. Logan has seen hundreds of delays and cancellations this week due to a snowstorm and the bitter cold that followed.

Southwest said no passengers were on board the out-of-service jet when the tug being used to position the aircraft hit a patch of ice and struck the plane at about 1 a.m. It remained on the tarmac overnight as maintenance crews assessed potential damage.
