I was at the flight school today when I got a phone call from my father telling me to turn on the news if I could, that an AF jet ran off the runway at YYZ and was on fire. I turned on the TV there at the school and it was already on CNN news and they were showing the image from the traffic camera across the 401 from the airport of the burning airplane. They also proceeded to show a picture of an AF A340 from the spot near the // taxiways at CDG. I almost instantly recognized it as being familiar to me, and I thought it may have been either mine or Chris Liao's photo here on a.net. I only saw it for a second or two before they removed the picture, so I didn't get a real good look at it and the photo wasn't my main concern at the time. However, if anyone else saw it on CNN today and if you thought it looked like one of these....please let me or Chris know. I thought it looked more like the K64 slide but I am not sure.

Again I don't want to sound insensitive to the matter, but after all if CNN did post one of these photos, it is still a copyright violation, regardless of the accident that occurred.
