“A Little Bump,” Huh?

Whoops! Here’s some great footage of Tuesday’s collision between an Air France Airbus A380 superjumbo and a Delta Comair regional jet on a taxiway at New York’s JFK airport. To say the A380 “clipped” the regional jet is a bit of an understatement. Who’s got whiplash?

No, it’s not defense related but I couldn’t resist posting it.

Can't blame someone for falling asleep again… unless it's the pilots.

LOL. Hope no one got whiplash (except for the the insurance claim only kind). My Dad had a side business for a while with a very senior Delta Air Lines pilot (L1011 Captain) as a partner. He used to regale us with stories of his encounters with what he referred to as 'Air Chance'.

It's not normalized to the amount of air traffic in the country.
