Default Air France, Comair, fender bender

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – An Air France Airbus A380 collided with a Delta commuter plane while taxiing to the runway for takeoff from John F. Kennedy International Airport on Monday night.

The Federal Aviation Administration’s Jim Peters said at approximately 8:15 p.m. the left wing of Paris-bound Air France Flight 7 struck the tail of Comair Flight 6293, which had just landed from Boston with 62 passengers and 4 crew on board. No injuries were reported. Passengers were removed from the Comair flight and both planes were towed.

I would have thought the wing of an A380 would be higher than the tail of a 200...

Does AF even have A380's?
