The "geometry" of your suggested position doesn't work. The X's mark areas where I believe you are suggesting the site is, but there isn't any other place on the airfield where the view that is being widely broadcast, can look like the inset. The arrow marks an approximate line of sight, give or take...

The tail didn't "swing around" as there are no tell-tale gouges in the ground.

As mentioned, comments from passengers indicate a right turn.
