Beschrijving:
An American Airlines Airbus A321 (N991AU) was involved in a ground contact incident with a SkyWest Airlines/American Eagle CRJ-200 (N862AS) at Chicago-O'Hare International Airport, Illinois, USA.
American Airlines flight 1162 was taxiing out for departure when the left hand winglet contacted the stabilizer of American Eagle flight 3047, that had arrived from Rochester International Airport, MN at 20:16 hours local time.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The A321 flight crew's incorrect evaluation of the clearance between the aircraft, leading to the inadvertent collision with the horizontal stabilizer of the CRJ700. Contributing to the accident was traffic congestion that resulted in the CRJ700 having to stop prior to fully clearing the perpendicular taxiway."
