An Austrian Airlines Airbus A320-271N sustained substantial damage on the ground at Vienna Airport, Austria.
Photos suggest that the right-hand horizontal had separated, possibly after colliding with a jet bridge.

The aircraft had arrived as flight OS456 from London-Heathrow Airport at gate F11 at 20:45 UTC. Photos from the scene show the accident took place near gate F33.
The airline reported that no passengers or crew were on board during the mishap.
The accident may have happened as follows, the aircraft was moved to the outer row stand of parking after arrival, but the aircraft's brakes were not applied and wheel chocks were not put on the main wheels, after which the aircraft independently took off on the platform and collided with the passenger bridge and the light pole with the consequences as shown in the pictures.
