This A320 from Air Via was on Final for LEJ. Shortly before first touch down on the runway the aircraft made a short touch and than lift up again. At the second touch the aircraft suffered from a heavy tail strike. That was a really horrible sound and you can clearly see the the damage under the APU. Hope that i will never see this again !

Looks like a WW2 era airplane with a tale wheel, as DC3 for example. Great photo capture!

Can someone explain the "paint glitch" on R2 (rear emergency exit door) ? *oops* ?

RE: Paint Glitch -- I looked through the bulk of the online photos of this aircraft (that I could find) and none of those photos show any paint anomaly near the rear door. I wonder if it was part of the A.Net watermarking.

Fantastic timing on this shot. They won't be buffing that scratch out anytime soon!

The photo touches me because I was on that plane some month ago. But the paint glitch at the rear exit looks strange.
