Wow! That's very close to a tailstrike! Very rare shot of an A320 and very high AOA! Wonder why though.

Little to close for comfort

Oh Man, he has pulled the stick too much. Dear, it's an aircraft not a truck steering. Very delicate moments do work.

I thought the Airbus may have had a system which prevents over-rotation on t/o?

My thoughts exactly. However, you can see that the wheels are off the ground and the high AOA was probably a result of normal rotation plus a bit extra to clear the ground. Now in the air it doesn't matter but would have been spectacular none the less. Great photo by the way with the A/C behind.

Onur Air frequently makes tailstrikes, I wonder if this is one of them.

AOA can just be guessed. But it's definitely a high pitch!

Don't worry! Kaspersky prevents them from tail strike! Excellent detail in such a rare but appropriate moment!

We even have a good visible wingflex which is rare on a 320 rotation picture i think, nice shot!

Gettin' a little close there, are we? Very nice catch there as we almost scrape a little paint!

Maybe the avionics got infected with a virus.

I'm not sure the tail is that close. It's an optical illusion. Regardless, it's a great photo!
