At Chicago-O’Hare International Airport (ORD), a Qatar Airways Cargo Boeing 777-200F collided with a light pole, severely damaging its wing.

The incident happened on August 5, 2022, following the completion of flight QR8141 from Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL) to Chicago on board the aircraft, registration A7-BFH. The aircraft’s right wing collided with the pole as it was taxiing after touching down on runway 10C.

“Qatar Airways can confirm that a cargo aircraft, QR8141 operating from Atlanta to Chicago, came into contact with a light post while taxiing at Chicago O’Hare and sustained some damage to the wing,” a Qatar Airways spokesperson told AeroTime. “The incident is currently under investigation and we can confirm that no crew members were injured.”

A photograph posted on social media showed how the pole sunk deep into the leading edge of the wing.
