AIRBUS A330 near TAILSTRIKE during DEPARTURELast saturday I filmed an Airbus A330 of Lufthansa departing at Düsseldorf. I have never seen an airplane coming so close to a tailstrike before. A tailstrike is the situation when an airplane almost hits the ground with its tail section.

At first I thought it was probably an optical illusion but then I watched other airplanes takeoff from the same spot and everything looked normal. I also added a departure of an Airbus A350 for a comparison.

Thanks for watching, see you next Saturday.
