perhaps for the tech section. But is this pseudo increase in airspeed in windsheer really an increase in drag load on the slat or is the effect just air-turbulence shaking these bits ?

Looks more like a FOD damage, maybe on landing or even when on T/O from previous?

<what about the other wing>
Well, maybe the air wasn't 100% uniform and maybe the other side would have failed on the next equivalent occurance. I'm not suggesting this is the cause, just what may be a relevant question.

I'd have thought that an airspeed increase from wind shear (an abrupt increase in head wind) would be real, but short-lived (until the aircraft slows and drag again equals thrust). I have no idea whether the resulting overspeed could be enough to break a slat.
