Close Calls

Jumbo Jet Clips Plane at JFK

Travelers survived a close call at JFK International Airport Monday, when the wing of an Airbus 380A—the world’s largest jet—clipped the tail of a smaller plane. The Paris-bound 380A was headed for the runway, while the smaller plane had arrived from Boston and was taxiing to its gate. The two collided at an intersection when the smaller plane moved too soon. No one was injured.
