Jumbo Jet Clips Smaller Jet's Tailfeather

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & True

Woah!

This is incredible footage of an event that must have been terrifying for anyone watching or on board either of the planes involved!

While taxiing toward the runway in preparation to depart, the wing of the world's biggest commercial passenger jet clipped the tail of a plane that had just landed at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Monday night!

Yikes!

The Airbus A380, a.k.a. the bigger one, was leaving for Paris when it caught the tail of the smaller plane, a Comair CRJ 700 Regional Jet, that had just landed from Boston.

Luckily, nobody was hurt, but the extent of the damage on both jets is not yet known.

Check out the jaw-dropping footage above to watch the jet being turned nearly 90 degrees after the jumbo jet clips its tail!

    One talking head said the big France jet design has a much wider wing span than usual.The smaller jet may have waited back where they usually do, but was surprised to get nicked and spun anyway.

    the big plane said to the little plane, GTFO

    This is not a "clip" but rather just hit it. :/ if it were clipped, the smaller plane probably would've hardly moved.

    That plane looks like a B777 not an A380

    Re: diamondheart

    You are right, the A380 is a Double Decker. Good fact checking Perez.
