Ground collision in-the-making! Taxying past about twenty meters away and bang! Pieces of prop flying in air and showering ramp with various sizes of matchwood. Whole episode was over in just three-to-four seconds and nobody was injured. Out of several photographers present (due arrival of B-25D N88972 enroute UK to Seattle) I may have been the only one shooting during those seconds. (Canon 30D + EFS 17-85mm f.4-F.6 IS USM at 41 mm, ISO 100, AV 1/200 sec F.8 and cropped 30%)
