Default Oops!

Fars Air Qeshms only aircraft a B747-281FSCD tipped backwards as it was being unloaded at Dohas Hamad International Airport. It tipped after cargo was unloaded from the front of the aircraft causing the aircraft to became tail heavy.
There is no indication of what damage was caused to the aircraft.

Reminds me of the KAL incident at YSSY. And the opposite problem of a plane taking off with its stand still tail attached https://www.atsb.gov.au/publications...r/ao-2019-006/
