What is the most famous aircrash photo?

PSA 182 has to be an amazing shot (for those who have seen it)
As well as: AA DC10 @ Chicago
Pan Am/KLM @ Tenerife

BOAC 707 at Tokyo-Haneda taxiing past the wreckage of a Canadian Pacific DC8 on 5th March 1966 (which crashed there the previous evening) about half an hour before it crashed itself. The 707 was photographed a couple of times in its rapid descent.

The concord one was very bad and horrifying to look at, but I think the PSA one deserves to mentioned too.

I live in Holland, and due to the media it had a great impact on me.

The first one now reminds me of the 'tourist guy' fake pictures, it just looks so fake (i know it is real).

Imagine seeing that in the distance while you are just chatting with a friend, and i'll bet they couldn't hear it gliding like that either (although i might be wrong, if its a fixed 35mm lens then it is quite close).

according to airdisaster.com, that BOAC 707 which crashed in Japan in 1966 had a flight number of 911  Sad and the accident was caused by 'encountering severe turbulence while the pilot gave the passengers a close view of Mt. Fuji.'
I wonder could this accident be prevented if the pilot didn't do what he did.




cathay pacific, now you're really flying

One of the most unforgettable crash photos (in my mind) is the shot of the nose of Clipper Maid of the Seas, lying on its side outside Lockerbie, Scotland, the morning after the fateful night PA 103 was lost. I remember reading a newspaper article and seeing Margaret Thatcher and her entourage standing near the nose a day or two after the accident. Hard to believe that 13 years have gone by since the incident, seems almost like yesterday.

It was especially memorable since on that particular day we were decorating our tree, and we normally don't do it so late. However, due to conflicts in the schedules of my wife's and mine, we had to wait until the 21st to decorate the Christmas tree as a family. I remember turning the TV on as we brought the tree into the house and feeling shocked as I had personally taken that flight twice before when visiting my sister-in-law while she studied in Germany. She had actually taken that flight many times before on the same aircraft, and she actually was on the flight on December 19th, though not on the same aircraft.
