Those Airplanes are Big, are they Not?

Here we have an interesting crash. It happened at 07:45 this morning on Xiamen Airport in the great city of Xiamen in Fujian Province. An airport-van crashed straight into the landing gear of a jumbo jet, while the jumbo jet was just standing there, parked in front of the terminal.
It seems the van’s driver was trying a shortcut and somehow didn’t see the airplane. The accident delayed air traffic by hours and the plane that was hit needed repair. Fortunately nobody got hurt.
