    Unfortunately we are only human and make mistakes.

    I just hope there where no ground workers working on the Delta Aircraft.

    i don't think that jet is on the stand yet its still taxing from the runway after landing - it could have been a big bang if the wing had ruptured as i'm sure it contained a hell of a lot of fuel!

    and yes i know we all make mistakes i do quite alot!

    nearly, Comair - its a name Delta use for regional routes its also known as Delta Connection. The aircraft are branded with Delta. That was the operator of the small aircraft.

    I'm guessing the people in the little plane were a little shook up from that! Not to mention, it shows the power of large jets if it can just spin another plane out the way as if it wasn't really there!

    Obviously none of you have ridden in a French Cab in Paris, clearly this is where the pilot gained his experience...

    That's why you should leave your belt on until you are told it is safe to take it off!

    I doubt that it is. It will have been filmed in NTSC, with what looks like it maybe a security type camera, at low light levels, probably at a low frame rate. I do wonder why the camera pans, unless it was under control of someone who saw what was about to happen.

    Air France have a terrible safety record for a major airline. Avoid!

    Oh nothing frustrates me more on planes than idiots getting up when the belt sign is on, or even when the plane has just landed and is taxi-ing. I just want to scream SIDDOWN!!!!!!!
