A video of an Air France Airbus A380 colliding with a Comair jet at New York JFK has emerged, showing the larger plane hitting the smaller one, causing it to spin 90 degrees.

The Air France superjumbo was taxiing along the runway at JFK when it clipped the wing of the Comair Bombardier CRJ700. No one was injured and a spokesperson for the airline said that only “material damage” was caused.

Both the Air France aircraft and the CRJ have been taken out of service.

The Air France jet was flying to Paris Charles de Gaulle on 11 April. According to Air France, the jet “clipped the tail fin” of the Comair plane – which had arrived from Boston.

JFK ground control communication records show the Comair 553, telling JFK controllers: “Send a truck, they just hit us at [taxiway] Mike.”

Controllers then told another plane: “Don’t make the left on Alpha. Air France, they think they might have hit somebody.”

Air France said it would co-operate with an investigation into the incident.
