Emirates Jet Incident

Here is the story:

We don’t have much information about this yet; however, it sounds like the passengers are very lucky.  I worked in the airline industry for 27 years and can tell you that tailstrikes are not that uncommon – but it sounds like this one barely made it off the ground.  There is likely more to this story than the typical tailstrike.  Hopefully the investigators will get to the bottom of it.
