Air France A380 impacts with CRJ regional jet aircraft whilst taxiing at JFK Airport in New York. This video: http://youtu.be/WjuCI2yAVD8, is the actual radio feed on the ground for the aircraft.

CRJ was evacuated shortly after. It appears that the A380 failed to hold short and give way to the aircraft which had just landed.

Flightglobal (David Kaminski-Morrow)Extraordinary video images have emerged of an Air France Airbus A380 colliding with a Bombardier CRJ during taxiing at New York JFK.

Air France has confirmed the incident in which the A380 appears to strike the empennage of the CRJ with its outer left wing while taxiing.

The airline is still gathering details of the event and the extent of damage to either aircraft is unclear. The source of the video images is uncertain.

One report cited the US FAA as saying the collision was between Air France flight 007, heading for Paris Charles de Gaulle, and the recently-arrived Comair flight 6293 from Boston.
