Skidded from the runway and broke in pieces. Crew could escape and were not injured. Massive structural damage as you can see!

Nice capture dude! But seriously, look at the angle of that slide! That is extremely steep - must have been tough for the crew to slide down there!

Wow - great telephoto angle. Steep slide - imagine surviving this crash and getting hurt/killed by a train on exit - looks like the slide ends up in the railway line!! it is certainly down the embankment resulting in the steep angle of slide. Amazing photo!

Luckily the crew escaped not injured. Although the aircraft stopped safely, the emergency slide could have become really dangerous! Look at that steep angle, almost vertical!

What a great capture; though I think your caption might be a bit of an understatement!

Wooow, what a strong fence - who would think it can stop even a 747... :o) 5 stars pic, but the fence deserves at least 10! :oD

Aww that little scratch will buff right out!The
Kalitta crew did a good job as this crash could have been much worse.

Was the crew injured by the crash or by hitting the ground after sliding the slide? Thanks for showing that amazing angle!

Has anyone noticed the high voltage lines? Hitting them would have meant disaster.

I genuinely would find another exit and not jump down that slide. I would get so scared haha.
