Hmmm, I wonder what caused that to happen. Nice effect though.

You've nicely captured the flame and done a nice job with the vertical framing, capturing the full canopy and the little fins near the top of the vertical tail.

A rare shot of a plane in the midst of a dangerous moment... with some real visual drama and appeal.

Nice Picture, but your remark about the photograph makes no sense.

Great shot! The remark about running away to destruction means the aircrew didnt shut the engine down correctly and the engine self destructed.

Very interesting picture, but it appears to me to be a "tail pipe fire," which usually blows out by the time the engine comes up to speed during engine start and usually causes no damage. So, was the engine actually damaged? Again, thanks for sharing, because it's something you don't see every day.
