Did that happen at KFLL?

Yes on landing at FLL.

Looks like a lot of nose up stab trim to me.

Maybe the pilot flying was trimming into the flare.

Don’t know, definitely got close but did not hit. Guy on other forum said he inspected it at FLL and no damage so good news there. The Patriots did drag their ass in Miami though. :smiley:

From the photo, it sure looks like the tail skid, at least, needed some maintenance attention.

As I recall, there was a strike detection clip on the skid which had to be reset if the tail skid struck the runway.
