A clip of a clip

 Permanent link

Among the videos going viral this week is a low-resolution clip of what appears to be an Air France Airbus A380 clipping a Comair regional jet during its taxi at New York Kennedy.

According to a report in USA Today, both planes were carrying crew and passengers at the time of the sideswipe, but the FAA said no injuries were reported.

You can see from the video how enormous the A380 is, especially compared with the regional jet -- which is spun practically 90 degrees after the superjumbo's wing clips the smaller plane's tail.
