The world’s largest passenger aircraft clipped a much smaller commuter plane on a dark, wet tarmac at New York City’s Kennedy Airport. No one was injured. The two jets – an Airbus A380 operated by Air France and a Bombardier CRJ700 regional jet – were towed away after the collision around 00:00 GMT on Tuesday and will be inspected to determine the extent of their damage. The Airbus A380 was taxiing out to a runway when its left wingtip crashed into the tail of the regional jet, operated by Comair for Delta Air Lines and stopped on an intersecting taxiway, whipping the smaller plane around nearly 90 degrees. Air France said 485 passengers and 25 crew members were aboard the Paris-bound Flight 7. The Comair flight was carrying 62 passengers and four crew members.
