The poor man i feel so sorry for him.

A visitor from United States posted Mon September 10, 2012:
I feel more bad for the person than the plane due to the fact he is dangerously close to the fire.

A visitor from Hungary posted Tue May 22, 2012:
It is sad they didn't have a fire extinguisher close to the plane! After 60-90 seconds of burning they were able to extinguish fire, but the right bottom wing burned out complete. Hope to see Her fly again! - I was a witness -

A visitor from Brazil posted Sun May 20, 2012:
Should have a fire extinguisher at his side. What was the final result?

A visitor from - posted Sat May 19, 2012:
I really feel sorry for the guy. I hope the plane flies again soon. The lower wings are just fabric right?

A visitor from - posted Sat May 19, 2012:
This picture is very good, yet very depressing. That poor man. That poor plane. Before I clicked on the picture I too thought that it was just a fule rich start-up... I wish it was just that.

A visitor from United States posted Sat May 19, 2012:
Excellent on-the-spot coverage with outstanding photography to match. I sure feel for the old guy though. You can just sense his great frustration.

Never, EVER conduct an engine test (or start, for that matter) without a really big CO2 fire extinguisher standing-by, that is for sure.

A visitor from United States posted Sat May 19, 2012:
Oh No. Very sad indeed : (

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Sat May 19, 2012:
This is a sad day. An-2's are some of the most beautiful machines on earth. I hope she earns a full recovery soon.

A visitor from - posted Sat May 19, 2012:
I feel for that poor man

A visitor from - posted Sat May 19, 2012:
Wellpp, there's your problem

And I thought it was just starting up...

A visitor from Sweden posted Sat May 19, 2012:
I don't see any fire extinguishers :(

A visitor from - posted Sat May 19, 2012:
Poor, poor An-2 :'(

A visitor from - posted Sat May 19, 2012:
That's...annoying. Hope that guy was ok.
