NEW YORK - Two jets involved in a fender bender at New York City's John F. Kennedy Airport will be inspected to determine the extent of their damage.
Air France Flight 7, bound for Paris, was taxiing on a runway when its left wingtip clipped the tail of a Comair commuter jet just after 8 p.m. on 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 the Airbus A380. It says it is cooperating with the investigation.
The Comair CRJ 700 regional jet was carrying 62 passengers and four crew members. Comair operates flights for Delta.
