The wing of a Virgin American jet airliner clipped a chain link fence Saturday while backing out of a gate at O'Hare International Airport.

No injuries were reported.

Airline officials say damage to the plane appeared to be confined to a wing vent.

Passengers were taken off the plane while it was inspected by mechanics.
