    I wonder if they were both required to stay put at their current location shortly after the incident? Given the location in the middle of a busy taxiway, it must have caused some traffic!

    Also, I was wondering whether the BR pilots even felt a jolt at all?

    Yeah, the story only mentioned those on board the AE baby airplane, although this seems nothing like the incident, IIRC at JFK, when the AF A380 spun around the RJ and there was speculation about reckless taxiing at excessive speeds by AF bullies.
