Here's a more detailed report from the Sydney Morning Herald: Qantas jet hits airport blast fence

Qantas is investigating an incident in which one of its jets carrying more than 200 passengers hit a fence ...

... like a minor collision in a car park. ...

The wing tip of a Qantas Boeing 747-400 struck a blast fence ... "We understand it was being directed by an airport marshaller. No-one was hurt as a result of the incident." ...

... it took ... about an hour to get the plane clear ...

Crews lightened the wing by pumping fuel into the port wing fuel tank and removing luggage and cargo, and the wing was lifted clear of the fence.
