    here's a picture from the same incident:



    and a quote from a different forum:

    Just called a colleague and friend who is on duty in maintenance, he has worked on the AC:

    wingtip completely bent upwards, lower half of winglet bent inboard at about 45 degrees, slat partly grounded. No further damage.
    We had a tough storm over here in Europe last weekend.

    Actually that guy broke the law cause he attempted the approach exceeding airbus operating limitations...

    Almost had a tragedy here...

    yep i think it was windshear. the pilot was realy struggling to keep the a320 aligned on finals, should have declared a go around sooner than he did. the strong winds only came into force about 100ft i think so it was all very quick.

    Roberto,

    Isn't this similar to the IB incident in Bilbao a while back?

    Can you judge the possible wind shear effect that close to a touch down (I guess as reported by previous flights), or does it really depend on the current crosswinds as you suggest, in which case an alternative should have been the best choice?
