Well, damage indirectly caused by birds. More than likely alot of those holes and dents are caused by the airframe slamming into the water at over 130knots.

I wasn’t aware it became a museum aircraft. I’ll have to go see that for myself sometime. Thanks for sharing!

Still wish they fixed it and kept using it and then sending it to the Museum.
Wouldn’t it be amazing to get on a plane and realise this plane once landed in the water.

Also where are the pitot tubes

Been there. It’s a very cool experience

It’s a miracle that no one was seriously injured or even killed. Nice pictures.

Nice fotos. Surely it was amazing to seeing it!👩🏼‍✈️✈️

The pitot tubes probably got ripped off upon impact
