Air France A380 clips a Comair jet Mon 11.04 at JFK

Both planes have been grounded pending an investigation.

An Air France Airbus A380 has clipped the tail of a small commuter plane at New York's John F Kennedy Airport, in a minor accident that caused no injuries.
The smaller Comair jet could be seen spinning violently on its wheels as a shower of sparks fell from the impact point just after 2000 on Monday.

Wouldn't happen here...Don't big jets have to give way to small jets in Switzerland ?

I'm surprised the French pilot didn't just shrug his shoulders and carry on.

Not sure they had any other choice than to be grounded!
