10 minutes after take-off this 767 returned due to an engine fire on the right engine. During final moments prior to touchdown flames were clearly visible. As soon as the plane stood still fire brigade put the aircraft under a blanket of foam. A catch in a lifetime. Scan from photo. Special thanks to Gary for help with editing.

Great that you caught it at the right moment. It was evidently a hot day, and you did a brilliant job despite the heat haze.

I just showed this picture to my mother. She was a flight attendant on this flight. She says thank you as well!
