Jumbo Jet Clips Smaller Plane on the Runway at JFK Airport and Spun It Almost 90 Degrees [Video]
An Air France Airbus A380 was taxiing on the runway at JFK Airport in New York on Monday night, and clipped a much smaller Comair jet.
The Airbus is the largest commercial passenger jet in the world, and when its left wing caught the tail of the Comair plane, it spun the entire plane almost 90 degrees in less than two seconds.
Luckily, none of the 62 passengers on board the smaller jet were hurt. But even though the video doesn’t have sound, you can tell the people on the plane must have felt a pretty big jolt.
(What they don’t tell you is that once the AirFrance plane came to a stop…they surrendered to the smaller plane.)
