someone may correct me on this but I think with fuse damage like this the hull is a writeoff.

On landing the aircraft is said to have bounced twice, and in an effort to correct it the FO pitched down, resulting in a third bounce directly on the nose gear.On that the third landing passengers reported the PSU's deploying, and all #### breaking loose.It's been confirmed that initial FDR examination showed that the nose gear hit with a force of around 11 to 12G.Besides the obvious fuselage wrinkling there is also apparently some significant damage to the wings, all unconfirmed of course but SkyService themselves don't even seem to have acknowledged the incident taking place, no statements, nothings.Passengers reported that there was a 'large dip' in the floor where the fuselage hadsustained damage.As of May 29th, Boeing were on site assessing the damage, some places also state that preparation and preliminary repairs are already underway.Also I've only just thought of checking this, but the aircraft is still the property of MyTravel Airways Ltd with it being leased to SkyService, so the ultimate decision to mend or not to mend lies with MYT.
