My question is are newer airbuses designed different or is the vertical stabilizer the same basically? Is this unlikely to happen on an Airbus A321.
Here is the accident I am referring to.

Basically my question is has the plane's tail structure changed compared to this plane, which is an a321.
I guess basically my question comes about because I have never been on an airbus and I have heard about rudder problems. Just looking for some information from those who are more knowledgeable than me.Thank you.
