Sometimes you have to take the barrier to get the airplane stopped, but this is ridiculous... 
 
Seems like the ANA could use some assistance from MacGyver....
 
I would like to hear the stories of the guys in the tower. Looks like it was a pretty close call for them.
 
Boq, This looks like one helluva fetchup. The old bird looks like she's talking out of her tail. "Hey Grumpy, you're such a SMART A$$, what would you be saying, if somebody drug yours along a rough masonry wall? I didn't think so, Just Shut Up!"
 
In best Maxwell Smart voice: "Missed it by that much!"
 
Copilot: Dude, told you it was a wall.
Pilot: I coulda sworn it was just a shadowline.
