    Air France collision taxing at JFK

    Just got a report of a minor collision on taxi way. Plane now being towed to gate 5 of Terminal one to de-board passengers. Sounds like it was outbound.

    Anyone have any further?

    Hearing that it was an Air France A-380 that struck a DL Connection aircraft while taxing, rumor A-380 severed tail off DL Connection !

    Apparently there was a CNN reporter on the plane. They don't have much but what was originally reported.

    They also had an MD-80 make an emergency landing tonight in RDU while flying JFK-FLL due to "electrical odor."

    Dude, that A380 just layed out the CRJ. Surprised no one on the CRJ was injured.

    They can call this Smackdown at JFK. Glad no one was injured, that was quite a wack.
