Looks almost the same as one that I saw on a -800 about 2 years ago. Emergency landing, overweight. Took about 2 months to replace the belly skins, Stringers and frames. It should fly again

Nasty, but definitely not the worst I have seen!

'tis a flesh wound  

No, it will take a bit of work, but as n901wa says, it will fly again (not should...will).

That's gonna cost a good few quids to put right! How come the tail skid wheel didn't protect it

Ouch! Talk about bare ass burn! I've never been on a plane that had a tail strike while landing, but I'd imagine it's not fun to experience...


Do not bring stranger girt into your room. The stranger girt is dangerous, it will hurt your life.

Far from the worst tail strike I've ever seen, the Airtours 757 that had a tailstrike off-runway during a Go-Around at Puerto Plata in 1998 always sticks in my mind as a bad one...

Looks bad but nothing too serious. Costly but it will fly again.

Im not worried at all, my comment was on the sarcastic side   I know MA are a safe airline & that accidents like that can happen to any carrier. Im more looking forward to my flight to BUD than I am my next FR flight

A Touchdown at 2.7G?? What sink rate is that on a 737?

Most airplanes can handle a sink rate of 15' per second, 900' per minute, but you are going to feel it.

Quoting b767 (Reply 14):

That is well above 'normal' which is usually around 2.0G to 2.2G, unless the pilot greases it onto the runway. This one, and the B-757 picture look like they lost a lot of airspeed in the flair, and the nose popped up on them, thus the tail strikes. I though the tail strike wheel was an option in the B-738, but standard on the B-739. The B-752 had to get her nose really high, or rap[idly riasing terraine to strike its tail.

Most tailskids have a crushable or fusable element as part of their design, and as such, will only provide protection up to a certain amount of force.
