Remark Photographer
PP-VPX (cn 28870/2899) The sign says: "STOP, DANGER". The drawing occured at least twice for real! Nice view of Varig´s 733 and the Sugar Loaf. The most beautiful approach in the world in my opinion. [Kodak DX6490]

This is a great picture! I love the backdrop of the mountain! As regards the sign, I saw on an episode of Mythbusters where they attempted to recreate the accident using a jet engine on a trailer and a Chrysler taxi cab. The problem was the jet engine wasn't big enough to push the car over!
