On 19 May, an iAero Airways (previously Swift Air) Boeing 737-800 (registered N820TJ) operated a domestic flight between Victorville and San Diego, United States. During landing, however, the aircraft was photographed with parts of its lower vertical stabiliser missing. Following images appeared on social media.

What is wrong with this picture? A part of the tail is missing!
