Dramatic

A visitor from - posted Sun February 21, 2010:
That has got to be one of the saddest things that I have ever seen. I have always liked the An-2. It pains me to see one in such a condition.

A visitor from - posted Thu November 5, 2009:
Poor Pilots, poor aircraft. Are theire alive?

A visitor from Finland posted Sun July 27, 2008:

Increadibly moving photo!

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Wed October 4, 2006:
Even though the photo depicts such a tragic event, the beauty that shows still is great. I love the lighting, and how it shines on the wreckage. But still, that bird is tough to remain largely intact, 'cept for the wings.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun October 1, 2006:
Very personal
Good colours and new to the libary.
Good work!!

A visitor from United States posted Fri September 8, 2006:

A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue August 29, 2006:
It's really a piece of art

A visitor from Poland posted Fri August 11, 2006:
Wonderful photo, but tragic moment

A visitor from United States posted Sat August 5, 2006:
It looks like a scene from one of those movies that falls in the same genre as Jurassic Park.

A visitor from - posted Sat June 24, 2006:
Its so surreal.

A visitor from Japan posted Sat May 13, 2006:
Oh no!!!!!!

A visitor from United States posted Sun April 9, 2006:

Shortly after takeoff from Zielona Gora, the engine quit. The Antonov crashed into a forest, causing all wings to be destroyed and extensive damage to the fuselage. The airplane performed flights for Polish National Forests.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu March 2, 2006:
What exactly happened here.. was the photographer part of the crash?

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu March 2, 2006:
What happened?

A visitor from Germany posted Thu March 2, 2006:
I hope you are well...?

A visitor from United States posted Thu March 2, 2006:
I've always thought it a very eerie sight to see ruins or an airplane wreck in the middle of the wilderness . . . beautiful lighting. Exquisite photo!

A visitor from Belgium posted Wed March 1, 2006:
Nice piture!

A visitor from Malaysia posted Wed March 1, 2006:
Somehow serene...

A visitor from Canada posted Wed March 1, 2006:
I hope nobody was hurt. Pozdrawiam wszystkich!

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 1, 2006:
Wow! One of the most dramatic shots I've seen on A.Net so far. Those -2's are tough though.

A visitor from Mexico posted Wed March 1, 2006:
Thank goodness you´re O.K. You got lucky you still alive after a crash of this kind. T.B.

A visitor from Finland posted Tue February 28, 2006:
No doubt STOL characteristics and rugged construction is a good thing sometimes. Engine failure at low altitude? The pic is unique and dramatically beautiful to put it midly.

A visitor from Austria posted Tue February 28, 2006:
Um .... you have really been in this plane???

A visitor from Brazil posted Tue February 28, 2006:
Great bird ... , sad photo ...

Forests and airplanes do not mix well...

A visitor from Poland posted Tue February 28, 2006:
YEP MAN!! You were very lucky! Indeed.. (to Mati : przestan pozdrawiac)

A visitor from Brazil posted Tue February 28, 2006:
Considering the damage and the density of the forest, you're lucky to leave the airplane walking.

A visitor from United States posted Tue February 28, 2006:
Amazing picture. Did the photographer fly this plane??

A visitor from Mexico posted Tue February 28, 2006:
Did any one got hurt??????? Still smoking!

Just plain Sad

A visitor from Poland posted Mon February 27, 2006:
