The rest is not very nice to see. Anyone wonder why that tree is still sitting there? apparently the nose did a complete flip.

Sad to see a Kalitta bird down again in 2 months. Are there fatalities?

To German visitor: Yes, unfortunately there were three fatalities.

Sad sight, this picture. Very dramatic capture with all that loose cargo (I assume).

According to the press, part of the acft hit a farm house killing two people

Yes, three people died when the aircraft crashed against their home... but the 8 members of the crew surprisingly had not important injuries.

Very sad to see this photo. I was stunned when I heard another Kalitta a/c was down. Note the packages scattered around the aircraft. Also sad that people on the ground died

Again another 747 classic less in the sky

For the previous poster:
No fatalities, just 2 slight injuries from the long slide down the emergency chute.

Oh my God. How did anybody survive that? I am saddened to hear that two people on the ground lost their lives. I'm sure the crew are counting their blessings at this moment.

Desolation after the police ribbon...Think to all victims
Did you have precisions on what are the quantity of spheroid m├ętallic 'grenades' on the ground and the big blue/violet and round bidons/cans in the grass, first plan? What use?

Thanks to everyone who wrote, and yes it was a very shocking sight. About the "grenades" they were refrigerator motors (I dont know how they are called) Those were the only things that were picked up because they were still in working conditions.

If anyone has any doubts as to "do miracles happen?" this accident should answer the question, once and for all! To survive this is truly a miracle! (so sad about those on the ground; may they R.I.P.)
Yes, those refrigerator "motors" are really TOUGH! Actually it's an integrated motor-compressor unit. (I used to install them on an assembly line, many yrs ago)
