The airline reported a similiar occurrence happened also on Apr 4th 2017 to the same aircraft.
This sort of points back to the frame itself, unless the same crew was involved in that event as well.

I'll avoid making "curvature of the earth required for takeoff" comments, because it would be really, really interesting to find out how and why this happened.

LH had a tailwind situation in November 2016
This, I guess, could also be a factor, inspite of what METARS reports.

Sudden gust, and all that.

Let the discussion run on!
