Taxiing down alpha for take off on runway 05L as Cathay-002 to Brussels. She suffered a tail strike on rotation, reported by the Captain of a taxiing BA 737 after seeing sparks under it's tail causing the runway to close for 10 minutes and two go-arounds so the runway could be inspected for damage. The aircraft continued but turned back and completed a couple of orbits before diverting to Heathrow maintaining no more than 9,000ft, presumably due to no pressurisation (Canon 50D + Sigma 50-500 EX APO DG)
