You can almost see the poor folks inside. I can definately see the captain.

Ever see a plane that met it's fate shorty thereafter?


Listen Betty, don't start up with your 'White Zone' s*** again.

Yes I did, I was taxiing out for a XC flight when a twin was doing touch n goes right infront of us while we were waiting for our clearance. After we took off and were no more than 10 miles out my friend saw a flash and approach told us that there was a crash. It was that plane and all three died.  Sad

I really believe this trail is morbid and offensive to the memory of everybody who died on that crash, as well as to their families. I even find posting the picture to use it in this way disconcerting.

I have no problem discussing crashes, but this thread is too much.

Back in 1987 I believe, I was on a SFO-CLE flight with a stop at DTW. Its was a quite night at the airport with a few thunderstorms around. We took off and the only other plane departing was a NW DC-9. Apon arrival in CLE I was told that plane had crashed on takeoff. That was the flight were only the little 3 year old surived.

I will never forget the look on my Moms face when we arrived. I can't even imagine the feeling of hearing a plane crashed in Detroit at almost the same time your son was leaving there. No doubt a feeling I never would have wanted.

I have a photo on this site of a Britannia 737 which crashed around 3 months after the photo was taken (while on lease in Panama), and I didn't know until some years later when I was researching the details of the aircraft to post the photo on this site. That was quite a strange feeling.

So they should remove every picture of every a/c that crashed? That's basically what you have said.

As739x: I remember that DC-9. My dad was working at Cleveland Center that evening. When he came home he told us all about it, and said that all metro tower told them was "don't be expecting him, he crashed off the end."

As for the photo- I find it a fitting tribute. It should stay.

The very first plane I took the controls in, a C152, N24961 crashed near RNM and killed both on board a couple days after I had flown it. I loved that little plane!  Sad

B747-437B,

With all due respect to you, the victims, and their families - wasn't 334AA the first to hit WTC?

Regards,

I'm sorry, I have to plead ignorance. I'm assuming this TW DC-9 crashed shortly after this picture was taken. Am I correct?

That is correct Spoon04- The flight was operating PIT-DAY and it hit a GA aircraft.

Yikes.. Thanks for giving me a good shot of the 'chills' 727LOVER.

Its truly heartbreaking to be looking at a pilot who, in just a shot time later, would be struggling to.. Well, enough of that. Chilling indeed.

I think it's really scary seeing a photo of a plane just before it crashed.

Never happened to me before.
