Touchdown on runway 05R as Cathay-001 from Hong Kong on a cold winters morning. She later suffered a minor tail strike on rotation from runway 05L when departing as Cathay-002 to Brussels, causing the runway to close for 10 minutes and two go-arounds while it was 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 as a precaution due to no pressurisation (Canon 50D + Sigma 50-500 EX APO DG)
