TAIL STRIKE ON TAKEOFF

Srinivas Rao | 12:05 AM | | | | | Best Blogger Tips
A tail strike is deemed to have occurred when the tail of an aircraft touches the runway during takeoff or landing. Long aircraft are more prone to this and this would result in significant structural damage to the aircraft and jeopardise the safety of the flight.Statistically, there are more tail strikes during landing than at takeoff.(Airbus)
