The right direction & the wrong direction. On August 23, 2001 the crew lost directional control of the plane during taxiing from a hangar toward a departure gate prior to boarding, it entered into a ditch causing serious damage to the nose section. None of the six crewmembers aboard were seriously injured. Note Malaysia Airlines B747-4H6 (9M-MPH) showing the right direction.

Thanks for sharing. It's sad to see what extensive damage a little bump can do to an aircraft.

I love how they cover up the logo on the tail and the "Saudi Arabian" titles to prevent loss of reputation to the airline!
