I was there when this happened and also saw the aircraft being repaired by the Boeing AOG team. The rear pressure bulkhead was distorted and had to be replaced (as well as the belly skins and frames). This involved removing the whole back end of the aircraft (Vert stab, horiz stab, rear emp, APU etc). If you stood directly behind the aircraft you could see the last row of seats! Since Japan Boeing take no chances with pressure bulkheads. It was a remarkable piece of work and a credit to the skill of the Boeing engineers and mechanics.

Great shot, embarrassing incident for all involved. Lucky that everyone got out of this safely. Looks like a big dog dragging his rear end across the carpet!

Wow! can you imagine what that sounded and felt like ??????!!!!!!

Posted by Sallehuddin on May 13, 2006

any story from passengers?

Posted by tEAm4za on May 03, 2006

Thats definitely more than 20 degrees nose-up. It really over over-rotated. Cheers for the photographer. Awwwww for the plane.

Hate to be on that flight. Great shot Thomas.

If F-WWOW did this it would destroy the runway...

I'd be scared to hell as the pilot!!!!!

Now too all, one of the facts that MH9 dident rotate, Mr. Red Cap on ground( Rampagent ) made some Failurs with some numbers of weight. Pilots get the wrong info-rong weight (less from what they are) too slow V1 Vr V2 Speed`s, PIC pulls and pulls and god damnit why is this ding not lifting?zzzzzzzzzzz Tailstrike. Thanks too all!

Now that's what I call keeping your chin up!

Posted by Rutger Leunen on August 08, 2004

Great Picture Thomas! I guess the reason was a too early rotation, with this result. Always nice too catch such incidents!

Wondering what did the pilots in the Avro RJ & the truck driver must have said.......(get explaination from Tripe 7 pilot & fellow JP spotter=TK!!!)

Posted by TK on July 30, 2004

BIG mistake on rotation rate (maybe) or so by the pilot. Pilots nightmare for the technical inquiries. Flight Data Recorder and Cockpit voice recorder DOES NOT hide things. Good shot at Bad moment!! What a pity.

Who ever the pilots are, they should be fired....MORONS!!!! The damage would have been very expensive to fix. T/o Attitude should have been 10 degrees and inceased at 2 degrees per second till the plane is climbing......It looks like 20 plus!!!!!

Firts of all, thank God all passengers are safe.. poor B-777.. Congrats to the photographer Thomas Luethi for his excellent pic.. By the way, last winter I over-rotate during a Take-Off from Hamilton (Ontario-Canada).. but Flight-Simulator are always much more tolerant!!

Posted by Wietse de Graaf on July 30, 2004

Yeah sure, blame the pilots without a clue as to what happened. Stop jumping to conclusions. There are dozens of reasons why this might have happened, and I don't think you are the expert here.

Posted by Thomas Luethi on July 30, 2004

"Take-Off from Hamilton (Ontario-Canada).. " Oh realy ? I got Born in St.Joseph in Burlington but thats 16 years ago! THX to all for the nice words! This is just a lucky shot! I dont think blame the Cpt. yet cuz we realy dont know why this hapend! Maybe Cargo started to move in the belly of the B777 on Rotate? What ever my Girlfriend got out of the Aircraft safe and is now via Frankfurt and Bangkok in Kualalumpur. Thomas

Posted by christophersmith on July 29, 2004

Posted by Andrew Hunt on July 29, 2004

Incredible...great pic.......!

EXIF stands for Exchangeable Image File Format. It was developed by the Japanese Electronics Industry Development Association (JEIDA) in an effort to simplify and standardize the exchange of data between imaging devices and software. Exif is a variation of JPEG, used by almost all digital cameras to record extra interchange information to image files as they are taken. The type of information stored in a file varies by camera model, but it can include such things as date and time a photo was taken, resolution, camera settings used for the shot, amount of compression applied, color information, whether or not the flash was fired, shutter speed, name of the camera owner, and so on.

Most photo manipulation software released after 2001 supports the reading of Exif information, however, if you want to ensure that the information is retained within your picture files, you must use software that supports Exif. The Exif information is lost if you save a picture in a program that doesn't support it. There is also specialized software specifically for extracting and editing Exif data.

Please be aware that, while most photos displayed on JetPhotos.Net contain EXIF information, some do not.
