Air France A380 plane collides with jet at JFK

Help

Amateur footage has captured the moment when an Air France A380, taxiing along the runway of JFK Airport in New York, clipped the wing of a smaller Comair CRJ jet, sending it into a spin.

Air France said 495 people and 25 crew members were on the Airbus A380 bound for Paris, while the Comair regional jet, which had just landed, was carrying 62 passengers and four crew members. There were no reports of injuries.

Both aircraft have been grounded pending an investigation.
