The wing of the British Airways jet plane hit an office building last night at the OR airport in Johannesburg.

"Anything to do with flights and planes is always scary. I'm glad it was not any worse than it was," says San Francisco resident, Katie Adler.

It was about to leave for a flight to London and was taxiing down the runway.

Luckily nobody on the plane which carried 200 people, was injured, but another four people who were in the building at the time, were hurt, says the BBC.

It turns out, however, that their injuries were light, according to an airport spokesperson.

Social media is currently showing images of the plane's wing as it is lodged in the building,"having cut a swath of destruction through it," says Newser.com
