That's not surprising looking at the damage. It's a shame as the plane was only delivered in 2006!

This one won't be back for sure... Any news for a replacement aircraft?

Must be the wing damage and landing gear, the fairing is not very important because that´s mainly Packs and some not very essencial things.
