This photo clearly shows poor condition of aircraft, It also mentions aircraft was ferried to GVA on 11th November 2000, and it seems was gonna be w/o

Next photo shows arrival into GVA on 11th

So it seems the aircraft was repaired before going to GVA, as it looks in good condition on 11th Nov 2000 landing in GVA

My question is, whether the first photo is actually in GVA and if not were was that photo taken, And is the next picture really the same aircraft.

Judging from the photo dates something must be wrong.

The incident was in 1999

We have one pic from 2002 were the plane is damaged,
and we have from 2000 without damages.

Can't be true for sure. Maybe a false date. Would contact the photog of the pics to be sure everything is right.

Georg.

I read this: http://aviation-safety.net/database/record.php?id=19990914-2

During climb, after the flaps and slats were retracted, the flight crew noticed, on the warning panel, the "PITCH FEEL" light, was illuminated. The captain disengaged the autopilot, checked the forces on the control column and re-engaged the autopilot. The "PITCH FEEL" warning light, remained continuously ON, during cruise and descent until the slats were extended.

What is "PITCH FEEL"?

All information about this incident are interesting.
