JFK runway collision spotlights dangers
on the ground
from USA Today
The violent collision between a double-decker Airbus A380 and a regional jet at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport is a sobering reminder that the ground can be a dangerous place for an airliner. Air France Flight 7, flying the largest passenger plane in the world, was taxiing toward takeoff at 8:08 p.m. when its left wing struck the tail of a Comair jet.
