Looks like someone else is about to join the ever-increasing number of the unemployed.

I bet the 747's pilot wished he had a horn to lean on as the wingtip approached.

Just a "Dent"..wish it was that simple. I'd rather deal with a damaged wing tip than what might turn into several manhours and downtime on the B747's repair job.

If the tarmac is as crowded as the passenger terminals (last time I was there) then I'm surprised that this isn't a weekly occurrence.
