Spectacular! Fire, smoke, trucks.
Captures the drama of the moment.
Bravo, Lee, for having the cool head to give us the photos of the year.
Superior to any photos in the media.

The picture gives the idea of the tragedy more than a TV report!
Good job Lee!

"Superior to any photos in the media."

Not true, because this photo was in the media. "The Hamilton Spectator" the following morning.

Great capture Lee!

I think what he meant was.... better viewing this photo on the web than on poor quality newsprint. A Digital file will always look better than newsprint!

Congratulation to the AF crew: when you see this picture, you realise how stressful it must have been to evacuate the plane. But however they succeeded and no one was killed. Great job!

I remember being able to smell the burning plastic and jet fuel all the way from Maple. (25 kilometers distance from the airport)
The smell was one that i would never forget... and the dark smokey sky..... a site that is so eerie that you hope to never see it again!!!

There is an immediacy about this photo which dramatically demonstrates the oft-repeated pilot's job description as 99% boredom and 1% sheer terror.

Thanks to that single accident, the Air France A340 that is supposed to arrive at 1:30 at CVG is ALWAYS delayed! Great Shot, Lee! You should add more photos to A.net.

It happened exactly one year ago in my city. I'll never forget that day.
At least I hope to see a.net thread today on cause and prevention.
