JAKARTA -- Indonesian airline Lion Air was involved in another accident on Wednesday, even as the search continues for remains of victims of last week's plane crash.

Lion Air Flight 633 bound for Jakarta was delayed for four hours on Wednesday evening, after a wing of the aircraft hit a pole outside a passenger terminal at Fatmawati Soekarno Airport in Bengkulu province. The plane was moving toward the runway in preparation for takeoff.
