Really? Then you must be the AF Captain involved. Don't forget, it's the Captain's responsibility.

Can't believe AF had to be told to shut down his engines, where was he planning on going?

When was this?

Nope, I was a groundie, and we all know the Captain NEVER c*cks up, it's always our fault.....

True, ZH875, very true, even when caught red-handed.

"All my engines..."
Ever get that sinking feeling? Disconsolate sounding French pilot in that clip and who can blame him!

Its a good ad for Canadair though - that's one strong tail fin.

I hope there weren't any PAX on the RJ...

I wondered about that, the red beacon is lit, so it looks like it was on or close to push back. No tug though.

I thought it shows strong undercarriage.

I reckon it should be showed on all pre flight safety briefings...This is what could happen if you get up before we get to the friggin' gate!!!!

I think reports said there were 65 aboard the CRJ.

Lets hope they were all strapped in. Either way, it should keep a number of injury compensation lawyers, stress counsellors and underpants retailers in gainful employment for a few years.

If you listen to the ATC recording you will hear an ATCO telling the Emergency Services that the CRJ was being evacuated.
Howard, that's almost unbelievable isn't it? Anyone with half a grain of commonsense would have done that automatically after all, he had no idea how much damage had been done to his own aircraft never mind the one he hit.

He has probably just seen his career disappearing rapidly into the distance, especially when you take into account that he had to be told to shut down.

Rollingthunder, I think you will find the term "Super" is an ATC one to distinguish the A380 from the 747s with the suffix "Heavy" and is probably in general use. It is NOT a comment on AF or its employees.
