Big plane meets small plane, with unpleasant results

What happens when an Airbus A360, the largest commercial airplane around, clips the tail of a wee commuter plane? The folks in the commuter plane get a ride they weren't anticipating.

This happened last night at JFK, when said Airbus A380 was en route to take off to Paris when it nicked a the tiny Comair Flight 6293, which had just landed from Boston. The result was the smaller plan getting tossed nearly 90 degrees. Luckily, no injuries were reported, but as you can imagine, everyone had to switch planes.
