This tail strike resulted from rotating 33kt too slow (130kt instead of 163kt). The tail scraped along the runway for 490m before the plane became airborne. This rotate speed was calculated based on a takeoff weight 100T less than actual. Source: TAIC aviation report.

I seriously doubt for the number 50, this could result to a very obvious error but anyway, good photo
