Super jumbo jet clips another plane at JFK airport

NEW YORK Air France Flight 7, bound for Paris, was taxiing on a runway when its left wingtip clipped the tail of Comair Flight 6293 just after 8 p.m. on Monday. The Comair commuter plane had just landed from Boston.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Jim Peters says there were no injuries.

He says both jets were towed to an area where they will be inspected.

The FAA didn't immediately say how many people were aboard the Airbus A380. Air France didn't return a telephone message seeking comment.

The Comair CRJ 700 Regional Jet was carrying 62 passengers and four crew members. Comair operates regional flights for Delta.
