Two Southwest Airlines planes collided on the tarmac of Nashville International Airport in the U.S. state of Tennessee on Saturday night.
   
There were no injuries and both planes were able to return to their gates on their own, according to a statement from the airline.
   
Southwest Airlines spokeswoman Michelle Agnew said that one plane crashed into the back of the other plane when they were pushing back from the gate in the rain.
   
The related aircrafts were the Southwest Flight 1555, headed to St. Louis and the Southwest Flight 4580, bound for Atlanta.
   
Both planes were out of service for evaluation, and passengers were put on other planes to continue their trips, the airline said.
