Obviously not keeping his eye on the ball, or was he unlucky with the weather?

Inside info is:-

There are probably only about 4 reasons why this incident has occurred:-

1. Misloading of the aircraft (unlikely)
2. Load shift on rotation (unlikely)
3. Techincal problem (Hmmmmmmmmm Airbus possibility)
4. Over rotation by pilot Most Likely)

Wow...that's the Emirates Flight (EK407) I normally get from Melbourne to Dubai via Singapore. Normally the captain is a Brit, Aussie or American..judging by their accents

Fact is both guys are still on the roster and both scheduled to operate flight(s) later this month.

My guess is that the people who really know what happened are not posting here.

Sorry, are you saying that forum is more reliable than this?

If you have rock solid evidence, by all means post, but another forum full of conjecture, rumor and downright twaddle?
