Can't believe it wasn't a tail-strike.... Or was it?

That is a very high body angle for a landing 747. Nearly a tailstrike. Great capture!

What a great photo! Looks virtually like a tail strike. Thanks for sharing.

Absolutely great and lucky catch! Such an enormous pitch, almost tail-strike, is far from normal 747 landing. I can imagine how you felt seeing this happening.

That's the aircraft equivalent of doing a hand-brake parallel parking... neat.
