Swift Air B737 Lands With Tail Parts Missing

Two days ago, a Swift Air/iAero Airways Boeing 737 landed in San Diego Airport with tail parts missing.

The 21 year old B737-800, with registration N820TJ, landed in San Diego International Aiport (SAN) after taking off from the Southern California Logistics Airport, more commonly known as Victorville (VCV).

In the photo taken by Doug Kempf, moments before the landing, you can see the aircraft with some access panels missing from its vertical stabiliser dorsal fin. It is possible that the rear stabiliser also suffered damage.

According to the same source, the damage occurred in flight and the crew were unaware of the situation.
