Yep, clearly. It's back is broken, just behind the wings. It has a date with the wrecking ball and shredder.

Take off or landing?
This may also break the back of the company, they are running on fumes financially.

Sad end to a Queen and even sadder for it spell the end of the whole airline. It must focus the mind somewhat if you’re flying for a carrier with only a couple of aircraft that even a minor prang rendering the aircraft U/S for a period of time might be enough to put the whole company under.

They have already been under: Tradeiwnds Airlines went Tango Uniform in 2008 with all pilots furloughed.
Then from the ashes rose SkyLease 1 and only pilots who were not “Troublemakers” were recalled.
That would include those who were active in organization a union, including Yours Truly.
SkyLease have been struggling lately with pilot’s pay checks been missing in action or a few weeks late, as well as problems paying for fuel, cash only in some instances.
This incidence were unfortunate, but they all are.
Tailwind Landing.....What else, heavy rain, hydro planning, lost all brakes and all reverse, not on speed?

Is there a good reason for selecting runway 14 ?.
Do both runways have, for example, a working ILS ?

Runway 14 and 23 have an ILS. Runway 23 however has been notamed u/s due construction. Ceiling and vis seemed okay for a NPA if they wanted to land into wind (if they had GPS). Without GPS there is no approach onto 32, only place I have circled in a transport category jet aircraft close to minimums.
