Airplane Collision in New York

The Canadair CRJ-700 regional jet operated by Comair for Delta Air Lines was no match for the Airbus 380 operated by Air France, whose wing impacted the tail of the regional jet enough to swerve it sideways. The incident caused cancellations of some Air France flights out of John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, where the incident took place as both aircraft were taxiing near a runway. Both aircraft were towed after the incident.
