Korean Air Jet Hits 2 Light Poles at LAX

Apr 17, 2014

A Korean Air A380 superjumbo jet filled with hundreds of passengers hit two light poles while taxiing to its gate at Los Angeles International Airport Wednesday.

An airline spokeswoman told the Associated Press that airport operations directed the plane to a taxiway that was too narrow. The airplane's right wing was scratched and two, 30-foot light poles were scratched, but none of the 384 people aboard were injured during the incident.
