In beginning, sorry for backlit, but there wasn't any better place to spot this accident. During taxi, Russian cargo plane bumped into lamp post, damaging outboard leading edge of wing [1200pix]

I'm extremely surprised that didn't do more damage to either the plane or the lamp post. Very costly mistake though!

One too many times that you pushed the envelope and it finally catches up to you and bites you square in the arse for all to see. Watch this Sergi. See just how close I can pass the port wingtip by the lamp standard. DOH!
