NEW YORK: Jets Collide At JFK

Two planes collided Monday while taxiing at Kennedy Airport around 8:15 p.m., according to Port Authority officials One of the planes was a Paris-bound Air France A380 -- one of the largest in the world -- which was carrying 500 passengers. While on its way to the runway for takeoff, it somehow ran into a taxiing Comair plane that had landed and was heading to the gate. The left wing of the Air France flight reportedly hit the tail of the Comair plane.
No injuries. JFK already has one of the highest "near-miss" records of all major airports.
