    AA slightly off center during takeoff...

    (CNN) - An American Airlines flight returned to the airport Wednesday night after hitting a sign during takeoff.

    Flight 300 was departing New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport on its way to Los Angeles International Airport when the plane hit a sign adjacent to the runway, Port Authority spokesman Steve Coleman told CNN.

    The sign "directs pilots as they're going down the runway," Coleman said. The plane hit the sign because it was slightly off center during takeoff, Coleman said.
    “I always tell the truth. Even when I lie.”

    How tall was the sign to damage the left wing outer edge. How much off center line were they to hit a sign. Cujo brings up a valid point. Will these pilots remain emoyed.

    Jesus! How close to the edge of the pavement could they have been, and what sign off the side of the runway is tall enough to do damage to the tip of a 321 wing?
    Could they possibly have dipped a wing on lift off? If so, that would mean they were close to cart wheeling the thing.

    Yes, the aircraft rolled on takeoff and clipped the winglet.

    Wowza, thankfully it wasn’t any worse or there would be a major headline including a body count. Hope it turns out to be machine and not man.
