Remark Photographer
JA81** (Photo 4 of 4) The pilot miraculously manages to straighten it up and complete the landing roll...and they only burst a couple of tires and caused minor damage to the number 4 engine pod. I still can't believe what I saw.

It looks as if the people on the lower left are watching... probably with some anxiety! Wow, the engine no.4 pod was slightly damaged? Then the a/c was apparently (I assume around your photo no.3) tilted to the right so heavily that it actually touched, cowling to tarmac... incredible, something else than a tailstrike!
