I am having a hard time making a decision of whether or not to upload some shots I have of N1819U after the crash in Iowa. They document the incident so accurately but I do not want to offend or dishonor the memory of anyone involved with the tragedy. Opinions?

They were of the crash scene itself?

I have to ask, if you are 16-20 years old then who actually took the pictures?

Unless of course you have pictures of the wreckage but it was taken years after the actual crash.

They are my father's, he has given me permission to use them. I guess he'd have to create an account for himself huh?

Anyway, would YOU post them?

As GoBoeing has already asked, are they pictures of the aircraft just after the crash or several days after?

They are from the next day, i.e. rows of seats, the nose/cockpit section, etc.

Those are pretty unique photos. Can you show us some of them? Anyway, I'd say those might actually have a chance.

As long as there are no mangled bodies in the photos, I see no reason not to post them. You hold a piece of aviation history with the ability to share it with the community.

I would probably post a few of them, but it's is up to you.

Yes.

Pictures of United 232's crash scene the day after would probably be among the most popular this website has seen in a year or two. Everyone knows that crash.

And if any of them were to result in you receiving requests for a print or to use it for profit and you felt at all guilty about making money off of the tragedy, you could just donate it all to Captain Al Haynes' numerous charity drives that he has setup since the crash.
