A terrible day in Tokyo taken just 30mins after the fatal crash of this once gorgeous Fedex MD11 at Tokyo's Narita airport. Fire is still under way out of frame to left. A terrible day and that burnt nosegear leg still sends a chill down my spine as a fellow pilot..dedicated to the crew and the firefighters at Narita airport for a superb job in the most difficult of situations.

Sadly, I heard that two pilots died...
In that day, 747s and long range planes couldn't takeoff and land because this long A runway were closed and just one short 2180m B runway were left.
