Del 01/91. Pictured during recovery operations, aircraft was gradually being lowered to the ground after slamming onto its tail earlier in the day because of incorrect unloading procedures. Incident was caused due by unloading with insufficient fuel in tanks to keep the C of G forward of the main gear during unloading. Shot from the elevated roadway between the domestic terminals to show you how (using two cranes for support) the MD-11 was lowered from its precarious position.

Great picture, but please keep the sensationalisme down a bit. Nothing slammed into the ground and the damage was foresure not extensive.
