Yikes, that is one big strike. Wouldn't be surprised if this one isn't repaired, or is just ferried at low level to be scrapped somewhere.

I read somewhere recently they were taking a new B744F by year end.

Its one of the younger 742Fs, built 1988, so might be worth repairing. But there are some similarly young 742Fs from AF and ANA currently on the market, so it might be wiser to snap one of those.
I wonder why there are so many tailstrikes on 742 freighters. One should think a truly long stick like a 773 would be more prone to it.

Could be because a bad balance.

They will repair, it´s only 20 years old. It´s cheaper than a new one.

Thank god no one injured.

Or could be a pilot who just pulled too hard, or entered the wrong Vr and rotated too early and too much... Many reasons.

Looks bad. Poor old 747.

There is no statistical basis for that statement. Normally, tailstrikes on takeoff are the result of either too fast of a rotation rate or wrong takeoff data. The wrong data could be the result of a gross weight error on the load and balance.
