NEW YORK (AP) - Two jets involved in a frightening collision at New York City's Kennedy Airport will be inspected to determine the extent of their damage.
An Airbus A380 operated by Air France was taxiing on a runway when a wingtip clipped the tail of a Comair commuter jet after 8 p.m. Monday and spun it nearly 90 degrees. Comair Flight 6293 had just landed from Boston.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Jim Peters says there were no injuries. He says both jets were towed away and will be inspected.
Air France says 495 people and 25 crew members were on Flight 7 bound for Paris on the world's largest passenger airliner.
The Bombardier CRJ700 regional jet was carrying 62 passengers and four crew members. Comair operates flights for Delta.
