Embraer 120 Leading Edge Horizontal Stabilizer Separation In Flight

Around one minute after takeoff,the crew felt a shock followed by strong vibrations on the controls. After deciding to return to the airfield and requested priority and the callout of the emergency services, they were unable to determine the source of the problem. The vibrations slightly reduced in intensity with the reduction of speed on final approach, the extension of the landing gear and of the flaps. On the ground, the loss of the whole of the leading edge of the horizontal stabilizer was noted.
