VALPARAISO — The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating a pair of incidents involving airplanes at the Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS) last week and Monday morning.

The FAA told the Daily News on Monday that it was investigating an incident that occurred July 5 at 1:35 p.m. involving Allegiant Air 1991, which originated from Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey. According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the Airbus A320 aircraft landed on Runway 19, rolled off the side of the runway then back onto the runway.

In a separate incident that occurred Monday morning at 1 a.m., Allegiant Air 1913, an Airbus A320 arriving from Springfield, Missouri, was pulling into a gate at VPS when it “made contact” with Allegiant Air 1927, also an Airbus A320, which was parked at a nearby gate.
