Beschrijving:
A Boeing 747-128 airplane, N3203Y, sustained substantial damage as a result of a tail strike during takeoff from the Anchorage-Ted Stevens International Airport, Alaska, USA. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and an instrument flight plan had been filed. The flight originated about 07:12, from the Ted Stevens International Airport, and was en route to Travis Air Force Base (AFB), California.
After the accident airplane arrived in Anchorage, it was refueled with about 100,000 lbs. of fuel in preparation for the final leg of the flight to Travis AFB. Prior to departure, the crew failed to account for the weight of the additional fuel, and inadvertently used the same performance cards that were used for the previous landing. The crew was unaware that the tail had struck the runway until after arrival at Travis AFB.
The airplane's tail sustained substantial damage as a result of the tail strike. The airplane was flown to Marana, Arizona, for repairs.

Probable Cause:

The flight crew's inadequate preflight planning, and failure to calculate the airplane weight and balance prior to departure.
