JFK International Airport

NY

Air France A380

Reg: F-HPJD

Aircraft was taxiing to take off and its port wingtip clipped the tailfin of a CRJ-700, spinning the smaller aircraft 90 degrees.

Could be a lack of awareness on the part of ATC and the Air France pilots. The NTSB investigation will sort out just who’s at fault.

510 aboard; no injuries. Aircraft suffered minor damage. The giant A380’s wings overhang the runway, making a collision with anything on the adjacent ramp all but inevitable. Reportedly, JFK Airport was granted a waiver to taxiway space requirements in order to permit A380 operations. NTSB investigating.
