"As for the Boeing 737 itself, it suffered serious damage to the forebody and is most likely not subject to restoration. As experts say, there was a deformation of bends of power set. In other words, the "muzzle" led slightly to the right, so the geometry of the aircraft's fuselage was broken. Of course, such damage can be repaired, but for this purpose, the board will have to be moved to the workshop of one of the Ukrainian aircraft building plants, which is very expensive and will take a lot of time. In addition, Boeing is unlikely to provide the necessary repair documentation," reads the message.
