Cargo plane hits lamppost at O’Hare Airport


CHICAGO (SCS) — The wing of a cargo plane hit a lamp post at O’Hare International Airport over the weekend.

A Qatar Airlines cargo flight arriving at O’Hare shortly after 9 p.m. on Friday hit a pole at the airport’s centralized de-icing facility located on the northwest side of the airfield, according to the aviation department of Chicago.

The plane’s wing was badly damaged.

No injuries were reported and officials said the crash did not cause any safety threats or hazards that could hamper airport operations.

The Chicago Fire Department said the plane had a flat tire, although it was not immediately clear whether the flat tire was the cause or the result of the plane’s collision with the pole.

The pole was stabilized after the collision.
