Lower… lower… lower… AAGGHH TOO LOW

You’ve probably seen the video of the spectacular aborted landing by an Airbus A320 at Hamburg in 100km/h crosswinds. (Here’s the PPRuNe thread about it.)

But you may not have seen this spectacular photo of the moment when the left wing clipped the ground.

It makes the Cathay Pacific 777 flypast at Paine Field look almost tame. (Unsurprisingly, CX management were unamused by that little stunt; everyone else in the world thought it was awesome.)
