SWA251 Tail Strike at KLAS, 1/3/2014
« on: January 23, 2014, 02:34:16 PM »

This is more of a request than me having something, as I'm at work, and the archives are blocked off for me (firewall).

SWA251 encountered a tail strike while landing on 25L at KLAS at roughly 7:45pm PST on 3rd Jan. 2014 (between 0156Z and 0356Z on 4th Jan. 2012).

That should be in the archives (again, I'm behind a firewall so I can't currently get to it). Could someone have a listen to those to see if it was picked up, and if so, post it here (even if it is the entire unedited clip)? That would be a good listen.

I assume you mean SWA2516?

Yes, you're right. I thought I typed in the full flight number, but I missed it. It was indeed SWA2516.

Found the audio of that flight but there was no mention of a tail strike on landing...you're sure of the date right?

If you were the pilot, would you mention it over the air?

Good point :-) and I suppose that anyone else who saw it would have kept quiet too...

I don't know... if I had been in line for takeoff I might have asked him if he forgot the toilet paper...
