Thanks to another photo by Mr. Weimeng, we can tell that this aircraft had received a new fin by September 15 2006... and it still flies for China Eastern as of 2013.

First Officer : Oops!!
ATC : Time to close down two Flight plans prematurely... Thank you China Eastern.

The rudder may or may not be able to be repaired. I think a new one is around $500,000 dollars. The main concern is the aft spar of the vertical stabilizer. I see damage going forward of the access panels possibly into the rear spar. Maybe too much strain on the stabilizer mount bolts where it mounts to the fuselage. I'm not sure a repair is authorized on the main spars of the stabilizers. Why take the chance? That could cost a couple million I would think. $50 or $60 million dollar purchase price for the A320. $150 million or so for the 777, so The vertical stabilizer could easily cost a couple million dollars. And the company wants to nickel and dime the workers by having baggage handlers do the push-backs instead of maintenance technicians. So much for the savings that year anyway. This photo is worth a thousand words.

Not a word on the condition of the front undercarriage. Just look where it stands in relation to the tow truck, yaiks!!!

Dang 777s. Tiny little things; always creepin up on ya...

A visitor from United States posted Mon October 25, 2010:
It's alright, they're both owned by the Government. No hard feelings =)

Great photo! how can they missed B777? and Boeing vs. Airbus ===> Boeing win!!

A visitor from United States posted Sun August 22, 2010:
... and the wing walker was where???

A visitor from - posted Sun July 18, 2010:
That wing definitely got "clipped." I hate it when that happens!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun June 6, 2010:
Sorry for that nerdy touch, but OWNED! How can you not see a 777? :D

A visitor from Italy posted Sat May 8, 2010:
Well done... it's so difficult to see a 777 behind you?

A visitor from - posted Mon March 15, 2010:
The 777 forgot to use the horns. beep beep! :)

Chinese Kung Fu !!!

A visitor from - posted Wed October 14, 2009:
The 777 looks untouched. the a320 is leaning to the left and the tail is about to fall off.

A visitor from - posted Sun October 11, 2009:
The force of the Triple 7 was strong, look how the main gear of the A320 tilted.

A visitor from China posted Wed October 7, 2009:
It's expensive to repire...

A visitor from - posted Wed July 2, 2008:
B777 is a giant. Don't mess with him, A320 :) Bad Boys Live!

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 27, 2008:
It's almost like the Asiana vs Aeroflot accident in Anchorage, except this time China Southern didn't leave Airbus a winglet for souvenir.

A visitor from United States posted Mon June 23, 2008:
One A320 Vertical stab + labour ($5000000.00), the look on the guys's face who's responsible, (Priceless).

A visitor from Turkey posted Fri July 13, 2007:

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat October 7, 2006:
Great photo note the tyre on right side, means quite a wack.

A visitor from Canada posted Thu September 7, 2006:
What a shame.

A visitor from China posted Mon September 4, 2006:
Good news.

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 31, 2006:
Great shot. The gear see larger forces on slow speed taxi manoeuvers. I'd be concerned with the composite tail and wing parts. big $$

A visitor from France posted Wed August 30, 2006:
I'd like to be here when the pushback guy gets the bill from china eastern and southern ...
How much $ for an A320 landing gear ?

A visitor from Taiwan posted Wed August 30, 2006:
Classic Airbus vs Boeing, this time going a bit too extreme.

A visitor from United States posted Wed August 30, 2006:
That has to hurt. Repairs there are going to be expensive and yes, someone is gonna get fired.

A visitor from Greece posted Tue August 29, 2006:
I guess the next time he is going to be more carefull!!!
If there is one other time!!!

A visitor from China posted Tue August 29, 2006:

A visitor from Uruguay posted Tue August 29, 2006:
Thats definately stress on the gear, check the taxi line, it isnt distorted, if it was a wide angle shot that line wouldnt look straight.

A visitor from China posted Tue August 29, 2006:
Something wrong with ATC or Push-back driver
what a mass in PEK

A visitor from Singapore posted Tue August 29, 2006:
What's with the ground crew? It's hard to miss a 777 on the taxiway.

A visitor from Austria posted Mon August 28, 2006:
I like how you can see the apu

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 28, 2006:
Someone is getting fired...

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 28, 2006:
To quote Richard Hammond on Top Gear..."Oof! That sounded expensive!"

notice the tilt of the inside right main wheel.....transfere of energy from the moving 777.....

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 28, 2006:
I'm pretty sure the landing gear is fine, just seems to me that it is a wide angle shot.

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 28, 2006:
That guy is EXTREMELY fired.

A visitor from Australia posted Mon August 28, 2006:
Woops! Costly mistake. Check out the right landing gear, looks like its under some strain!
