Damage looks reminiscent of the Monarch one at GIB some years ago - which was fixed, but times have moved on and this is apparently a 23 year-old airframe.

Like the monarch in Gib?

dont think so. I was part of the team that went to Gib and it wasn’t as bad as this one.

FYI On average, airliners are retired after around 25 years. Presently, the average age of an airliner in North America is 14.1 years.

Surprised this doesn't make more headlines. Delta breaking an airframe is newsworthy. Also what about the passengers / crew ? This wasn't a smooth one...

Seasonal flight by Delta. Azores are holiday destinations. Punta Delgado airport has single runway in excess of 8000 feet.
