A Qatar Airways Boeing 787 became very well acquainted with a flagpole at Namibia’s Windhoek airport over the weekend.

Pictures shared on Twitter show the wing of the aircraft clipping a pole beside the airport’s taxiway. This was the airline’s second visit to Windhoek following its route launch on Sept. 28.

Although the photos clearly show a crowd of concerned airport staff, the return flight to Doha on Friday departed only half an hour late, suggesting that the incident was not serious.
