Two Planes Collide at JFK (Video)
The wing of an Airbus 380, the world’s largest commercial passenger jet, clips the tail of a regional jet (a Comair CRJ700) at JFK while it was taxiing to the runway for a flight to France. The Comair flight had just landed from Boston and was awaiting gate assignment when the collision occured.
Look at how the regional jet gets tossed like a child’s toy (or an adult’s toy, for that matter…scary!!).
I know that there are ‘barf bags’ on those aircraft, but I think I would have needed something a little stronger.
Imagine being on the smaller plane as you are RIGHT ABOUT to get to the gate. Remember when they ask you to remain seated, with your seatbelt fastened? As my friend SFP said: “Here’s your sign!!”.
