12 Apr 2011 by BusinessTraveller

You Tube footage has emerged of an Air France A380 superjumbo clipping the tail of an Bombardier jet aircraft at New York's JFK airport.

According to Bloomberg the Air France aircraft was taxiing at the airport ahead of its departure to Paris CDG last night (Monday April 11), when it clipped a stationary jet aircraft operated by Delta's subsidiary Comair.

The report said that no passengers on either aircraft were hurt, and that it was not clear at this stage how long it would take for the superjumbo to be repaired.
