There is far too many incidents with the 737 due to rudder malfunctions and the like.
Im not saying this is what caused this crash but it sure boggles the mind.

RE: Is This 748 Way Off The Centerline?

First off Great shot.
I'm sure the reason behind the optical illusion is the tele photo lens (ZOOM) bringing the background a lot closer then it really is including the edge of the runway its the lens that is creating it.

Does it have something to do with safety or loss of height.
