Aviation Videos Forum | bending a 767
Testiment to the build quality of airliners in this day and age. That nose gear took quite a pounding - if it had failed, then the outcome of the incident almost certainly would have been catastrophic.
There is quite a bit of ability to flex built in to the 767 and reskinning whilst not trivial isn't a showstopper. As long as the frames and stringers inside aren't too badly damaged it should be a viable repair. It's only 9 years old apparently. I've seen worse (Emirates A345) get repaired after all.
This one perhaps;
The documents show pictures of the full skin abrasion, now those passengers can count themselves lucky.
This reminds me of some videos posted on here before, the Etihad A330 landing in NRT, the KE 777 landing in Narita and the KE 777 taking off from NRT with a tailstrike. Also the FDX MD11.
Must have been a dog of a flight to get it back to Toulouse from Australia unpressurised at 10,000 feet maximum. The fuel burn would have been horrendous.
