I'm sure your thinking "tailstrike" as well as I am. No info though. Should be an incident report somewhere on the web.

Its an Amiri bird - Airbus may have been fitting a missile defence system, although I cant see a bulge for the laser seeker head. Flare dispensers maybe?



What do you mean you dont have any bourbon? Do you know how far it is to Houston? What kind of airline is this???

The unpainted bulk cargo door area looks to have been replaced, perhaps an incident with a belt loader?

Looks like the standard skin repair after a tail-strike. Or it could be a belly skin replacement after finding sufficient corrosion, but the aircraft looks a little too young for that.

Probably tail strike...

Most likely...

Unlikely...

That's an option as well...

I doubt it... probably option 1

I understand some airliners are prone to tailstrikes, but the A330, and especially the -200, didn't seem like one of those to me... You'd have to have a crazy angle of incidence for the tail to touch the ground. I'm sure it's possible though, as a matter of fact, that looks like a proof.

I just think you'd have to go 'harder' to hit it.



Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit posting...

We did a repair on an A321 that suffered the same fate a few years ago. can make the reapair interesting if there is damage to the rear pressure bulkhead.

The bulk cargo door looks to be the original one to the aircraft, and not a new one.
