Wonder if the gear was even on the runway. Seems pretty far off the centerline for Lagarbage. Yikes.

This is what happens when you boys hire some zero to hero ATP kiddo with a couple hundred hours of Fifi time from Frontier. Stick to EWR if you’re going to start hiring low time SIC scrubs.

Someone's going to lose their secret decoder ring for that one.

Then again it could have been one of Gods gifts to Aviation too:

It seems that this was from August 2016.

Okay, little insecure civilian. How about you stick to things you actually have a clue about. The picture you used is from an accident involving weather induced bogus inputs from the air data sensors to all the fly-by-wire channels of a B-2. The accident was investigated and pilot error was not a factor. So, how exactly does that have anything to do with this recent 737 wing drag event?
