I was just on two of LOT's five 767s this summer, SP-LPA and -LPE.

How is it going for the airframe? The contact seemed very smooth, but would it actually be written off?

I got to hand it to the pilot.  That was an excellent job.  Probably didn't have thrust reversers since those engines were scraping the ground.

Seems like they didn't have wheel brakes either.
