NBC New York has the video of the taxiing Air France superjumbo jet striking the tail section of a Comair regional jet. Bloomberg says nobody was hurt in the collision at John F. Kennedy airport in New York although passengers in the smaller jet were jerked sideways. Both planes will have to be serviced, and the jumbo jet may need to have its wing replaced.

CNN had a reporter aboard the big jet who says it felt like hitting a patch of rough pavement.

The FAA didn't say how many passengers were aboard Air France flight 7, headed for Paris, according to AP. But 66 passengers and crew were on the Comair Flight 6293, which had just arrived from Boston. Everyone safely got off the plane.
