April 21, 2014 – LOS ANGELES, Calif. – An Airbus A380 superjumbo jet hit two light poles while taxiing to its gate at Los Angeles International Airport with hundreds of passengers aboard.

The Korean Air flight arrived from Seoul on Wednesday afternoon with 384 people aboard and an airport operations vehicle misguided the jet, which caused the incident, said airline spokeswoman Penny Pfaelzer.

The plane's right wing was scratched, but no one was injured. Two 30-foot light poles were bent.

The A380 is the world's largest commercial airliner, carrying passengers in a double-deck configuration. It has a wingspan of nearly 262 feet. | READ MORE
