Such is the ease in which people can shoot and upload video to the web these days - coupled with the popularity of the Airbus A380 - that this incident was caught on camera last night.
The enormous aircraft still manages to capture the attention of air travellers, despite being in service for a number of years now, but the person behind the camera of the clip probably wasn't expecting this to happen:
As FlightGlobal reports, Air France grounded the A380 immediately after the incident took place at New York's JFK airport, when a Comair Bombardier CRJ700 was struck by the Paris Charles de Gaulle-bound aircraft during taxiing.
The Comair aircraft, which was also withdrawn from service for examination, had recently arrived from Boston and was parked on the apron at the time.
The A380 had 495 passengers, 22 cabin crew and three pilots on-board. There were no reports of injuries.
