Bird Strike

A few weeks ago, we hit a bird while landing in Kabul.  It struck the vertical stabilizer (tail).  Neither I nor the other pilot noticed it until our post landing inspection.  We did not even see the bird or feel it hit the airplane.  However, it created a very large dent.  The airplane was still flyable, but we definitely need to repair it.  Another mechanic and I spend two days fixing the damage.  Below are the pictures.
