LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Wednesday's storms caused minor damage to two UPS aircraft parked at Louisville International Airport.

According to Mike Mangeot of UPS Communications, a Boeing 767 sustained damage believed to be caused by a container that nudged the plane. Mangeot said the aircraft has been repaired and returned to service.

The second aircraft, a MD-11, was damaged when the crew boarding stairs were blown and punctured the fuselage. That plane will need more extensive repairs and will be out of service at least one day.

No injuries to UPS personnel were reported.
