Can someone fill me in on the details of this flight? It appears as though there are people escaping the aircraft as it is being engulfed in flames. This photograph is shocking to say the least. My jaw dropped when I saw it.

Ben88:

Check out the current thread 'Continental Airlines crash'; in it is the full story of the above picture. However, to give you a quick summary, it happened 3/1/78 at LAX, it was a DC-10-10 that had an aborted take-off due to a tire burst. Amazingly, there were only two fatalities.
