Hard to see but it looks like the A380 wing hooked the top of CRJ's stabilizer assembly and if so it's amazing the assembly wasn't torn off. It took a substantial force to move the Comair like that yet apparently nothing major came off. Bombardier has built one tough little aeroplane
Their very lucky the CRJ was not boarding passengers or ground crew was not working around it.
