Fantastic capture of a dramatic moment that ended as well as you can hope. All that training came down to this moment and it was put to great use.

Great capture... But, of course, the passengers all evacuated them selves without any assistance from anyone, resulting in no injuries... Pilots are not the only part of the airborne team.

Kudos to the pilots. I saw the video of this landing on youtube after watching this pic, and I must say the pilots landed it more smoothly than most planes land on gears... Well done Pilots and great shot Pawel.

Firstly, what great airmanship shown by these pilots for a safe landing. Secondly, this is probably the only angle where the LOT livery looks quite nice!

I flew with LOT couple of times and it was very pleasant airline to fly with. Yet adding to that the skills of the pilots and the ground crew in Warsaw who were able to prepare the runway for the emergency landing and did not allow any fire makes LOT even better now. Great job!!!

The pilots worked by the book. GOOD JOB! But there's one thing I really don't understand. WHY are they landing on tarmac? Usually no gear landings are done NEXT to the runway, on the grass. And the reason we can actually see in the photo - SPARKS. Sparks and fuel fumes in empty wings don't work too well together. Not to mention they'll need to resurface the runway.

What a magnificent job of both flight and ground crew! And a brilliant shot, I might add! This is one of the few pictures where you can see engine no. 2 missing the foam carpet, causing a small fire that was luckily put out very quickly. Excellent job there by the warsaw airport's fire brigade!!

Very well captured situation. Extremely smooth and safe landing performed by cool pilots. Respect to airplane crew as well as to all ground crew. During TV interview passengers said that they thought that landing gear is finally down because of smooth "rolling". Later, some pax realized that something is wrong because of sparks appearing from under the wing. One elderly lady complained that during landing something was nocking in the back:)

Great shot of a very dramatic situation, 5*.
To the visitor complaining about landing on the tarmac: the B767's weight + the fact that its engines are slung under the low-mounted wings would probably cause the wing structure to disintegrate or at least dig deep into the ground, making landing very abrupt and increasing the risk of casualties. The tarmac was covered with chemical substance in order to lower its friction coefficient. Landings on the grass can be done on aircraft without low-wing underslung engines.
They knew what they were doing. Peace, mate.
