Folks, this is why you should always keep your seatbelt fastened, even while on the ground.
Many of you may have heard of the “wing clip” at JFK a couple of nights ago between an Air France A380 and Comair CRJ-700. When I heard there was a wing clip I didn’t think twice about it, because it’s not all that uncommon, and frankly, usually not a huge deal.
Then I saw the video of the wing clip from Monday night. Holy cow, this is hardly a wing “clip.” The CRJ-700 spins a full 90 degrees.
Unbelievable footage. I can’t even imagine what it was like for those in the CRJ-700. After watching that video I’m surprised (and relived) that there were no injuries.
