F-WWCA (cn 360) The most beautiful aircraft for a great picture ! Conducting VMU trials - the tail strike is done intentionally for testing purposes to determine the minimum speed at which the aircraft will lift off the ground.

That is a rather cool picture it must be quite intense when you are in the cockpit doing the trials as you rotate and don't lift off straight away. Nice one guys
