Airplanes collide on runway at JFK Airport

The headline:  New York Airport Jet Clips Smaller Plane’s Tail at JFK Monday Night

The link:  http://abcnews.go.com/US/york-airport-jet-clips-smaller-planes-tail-monday/story?id=13354251

The summary:  An Air France A380, one of the largest passenger planes in operation, clipped the tail of a small Delta Connection plane with enough force to spin the Delta plane around about 90 degrees.  There were no injuries reported.

The reaction:  This is an absolutely fascinating video to watch.  It’s a rare occasion that you can see a passenger plane spun around with seemingly such little effort.

Thankfully, no one was hurt in the incident but obviously there will be a review around what went wrong here.
