Now, you hardly see anything like this everyday. And even with a skidding of the plane, YOU NEVER SEE THIS HAPPENING!! This is an amazing event... Gabriel, good work. :)

One thing that strikes me is that accident occured 33 years before an accident occured at the same airport on the same day.

The unsualness of the incident and the timing of the photographer makes this pic a great shot.

I dont think this photo should be posted, because a young boy lost his life as a result of the accident!

Why there are no spoilers?

Spoilers are not seen because they were retracted in preparation for the evac (as per "memory item"). I would assume they were armed and subsequently deployed upon landing...

Pic looks a bit like a scene from a movie, doesn't it?

Look at the right corner,there you can read a yellow sign that say "caution driveway", now I think they must change it for "caution runway".
GOD may bless that kid & his family

While accident photos may be popular, this is in total bad taste. Also, there is so much extra stuff in the way that it should not have been accepted. Oh- the aircraft is a write-off now..

It's tragic to know that a little boy lost his life in this incident. However there is no reason for a lawsuit against the pilots, southwest, Chicago, southwest or boeing.

I have given this photo a single star as someone died in this inciednt which should never have happened the airport should have been shut all flights diverted and the pilots should have seen the snow on the runway THERE WAS SUPOSEDLY 7 INCHES ON THE RUNWAY shame on the pilots shame on the air traffic controler.

Do not blame the pilots! blame mother nature and the
midway airport authorities for staying operational.
stupid and costly decision.

Sorry to the family for there loss. The aircraft was fixed up and put back into servies. The repair was like 7 million but worth the cause

This accident is the only fatality in the history of Southwest Airlines. At this time only one other accident has happened to a Southwest plane when Flight 1455 overran the runway in Burbank. Compare the number of accidents Southwest has to other airlines.

This aircraft has been repaired and the tail number is now N286WN.
