I heard from a buddy in the middle east that the left T/R was MEL inop. and that the F O was flying. Apparently the Captain took control at a very low altiude but did not realize the F/O had selected go around. The aircraft was landed manually with the right engine at TOGA and directional control was lost. Not verified, just an explanation.

Looks like a total loss job. Pilots error no question.

I wonder if they'll scrap that plane or try to keep it and re-use it.

It doesn't look bent up in the photos. Very curious about that as well.

They had done plenty of protection to the plane when lifting.. to me it may still within economical repair...
It all depends on if the right wing spar is bent or not, missing landing gear may become a factor too if the supports are bent..。
