Wouldn't surprise me one bit, the weather up here in Denmark has been quite stormy as well. Heck, I even heard they had cancelled a Bundesliga-game somewhere as they were concerned about a hurricane developing

Ouch, what will happen to her? A simple replacement of the winglet or the wing and winglet? I give the pilots kudos for landing her in that kind of weather. LH does train its pilots very well so hats off to them for saving the day.
On the other hand, one could argue that it is very real. Look at the left engine and fuselage casting a shadow on the runway. There is also a reflection of either the left wing or left elevator on the aircraft tail.
us Air Traffic Controllers have a good record, we haven't left one up there yet !!

From the Aviation Community Norddeuschland board:
"hab grad mit nem Kollegen und Freund aus der Wartung telefoniert der grad Dienst hat, er hat die Kiste bearbeitet:
Wingtip komplett verbogen nach oben, untere Hälfte des Winglet ist nach inboard gebogen ca. 45 Grad, Slat ist angeschliffen...sonst alles ok!"
Just called a colleague and friend who is on duty in maintenance, he has worked on the AC:
wingtip completely bent upwards, lower half of winglet bent inboard at about 45 degrees, slat partly grounded. No further damage.

I play all the right notes but not necessarily in the right order
