Will Qatar sue Boeing over this?

It’s a cargo flight. Maybe he was cleared to taxi to the wrong apron. It’s on the co-pilot’s side. Somebody didn’t call for obstruction.

No passengers disrupted. Looks like a freighter

I fully anticipate someone will take me apart for this but, how does this keep happening?

Sounds like ATC gave them taxi instructions onto a taxiway that can't handle heavies of this width. There is a note in the taxi charts, so I'm guessing Qatar will sack these pilots for not paying attention.

But wait, there’s more!


Why is it always Chicago that screws up?

They seem to have major “housekeeping “ issues there.

Looks like the pole got into the Front Spar so that is going to take a while to repair. I am sure Boeing is preparing an AOG Team to head to ORD!

Man, that is one tough pole! Even though is bent a bit.
