Definitely a puff of smoke as the tail briefly touches the runway. I fail to see how anyone could not see that.
Gee, do you think that might be water blown up by the engine exhaust?………ð¥±
Nope,definately a tailstrike.
Referring to the “smoke”, actually water, not the obvious tail strike.
Tailstrikes are not that unusual on stretched versions of some aircraft, especially in gusty conditions, which is why they have tail skid plates attached to the fuselage to prevent skin damage.
