A380 (Nancy) hit by catering truck

UPDATE:
Nancy (OQA) was hit by a catering truck but the small damage was fixed very quickly and is already back in service

Poor Nancy :-(
She's having a hard time

I flew on OQA last week; heading home on QF94 this evening - saw one of the three parked at LAX as I came in from SFO but could not make out the rego.

Poor Nancy.. Highlights though that a new aircraft type isn't all flat beds and great economy

Perhaps he mistook it for a hangar.

or it was too white. Snow blindness is a big OHS issue on the tarmac.

Would have to be something along the lines of snowblindness, surely they would have seen the position of it while en-route compared to the hangars
Good to hear only very minor damage
