The plane had about 90K cycles which was 2.5 times the number it was designed for according to the article.

That was the Hawaiian 737? Lotsa cycles on those, updownupdownupdown... all day long. Salt air too. I guess it was a testament to the airplane that it held together.

Did you see the pics of the plane where the whole dang top ripped off? This damage is minor in comparison. The only person that died in that one was a stewardess that was standing up. Imagine riding back to the airport in a convertible...

Hey, I remain impressed by the fact that the plane flew well enough to
land it without any further problems and
amazed that with all of the technology available today, that there is
not something that essentially prevents the pilot from doing that.

More on this story:

"......A passenger reported the takeoff appeared normal initially
until the aircraft began to rotate, the nose lifted up, however,
nothing happened. The nose dropped again, then rose very sharply
perhaps because of the runway end becoming visible. A sound of impact
was heard from the back of the cabin followed by scratching sounds,
that lasted for about 5 seconds, then the aircraft began to climb.
During the initial climb the aircraft was shaking, the right wing
dropped which the passenger, frequent traveller, perceived as
unusual. The aircraft continued to climb heading north out of the
Madrid area, no announcements were made.......snip
