Shortly after 5:00 pm on Jan 37, this aircraft clipped trees on takeoff from a country airfield in Victoria and crashed. It burst into flames , starting a small grass fire. The pilot and passenger tragically perished. The pilot had flown the aircraft from England to Australia a couple of years ago.

Sadly this aircraft was lost along with the pilot (he is flying it in this picture) and a second passenger on 17July 2010 at PWM. The aircraft crashed just after takeoff onto a street in South Portland.
-> Was shot on approach to Mogadishu, 2007. Landed safely but DBR. Unfortunately, the plane that was sent to salvage usefull parts (EW-78849) also was shot, this one on take off. It crashed, 11 fatalities.
-> Crashed after an aborted take off at JFK, 1991. My shot was made in Brussels, which also was the destination of it's final take off roll. Fortunately, no fatalities. But credits to Joe Pries for documenting the crash at JFK

Gosh, compared to some of you folks I'm a beacon of good luck (sarcasm)... probably because the amount of shots I have in the database isn't huge. I did take a photo of the Asiana cargo 747 that crashed into the sea (HL7604? I forget) but it isn't' in this site's database. It's always kind of a weird thing to think about for me, that what you photographed doesn't physically exist anymore, or at least has been substantially changed.
