Looks like Air Algerie has put a new wrinkle in one of their B738 aircraft.
Story from PPRUNE and link in French with a picture.

I know this has happened to more than a couple of different aircraft. Does anyone know what the
repair procedure is? Do they cut out the wrinkled metal and reskin it or do they put couplers over the
wrinkled and weld them down? Or is the aircraft a write off because of structural damage?
