If the article is not too much longer than what you have already translated,
could you please translate the rest also?  It would also be useful to have
an electronic copy of the original text (auf Deutsch).

And, as Karl mentioned, it would be a great help if someone could track down
the identification number for the report issued by the Luftfahrt-Bundesamt.
The only other report of this incident I know of is:

     Tailpieces: A310 Aerobatics.  In _Airliners_, vol. 5 no. 4, Winter 1992,
     p. 64.
