Yah but careful careful reading the smh commentary - the ATSB hasn't said the F/o's controls were damaged. There are a number of serious flaws with the reporting by smh.com - suggest y'all point your browser of choice over the the ATSB for the latest "correct" news.

Great link with the photos Plavt, cheers! For those of you who use PPRUNE, there is are other photos on that site if you are interested.
