Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

This link has appeared in the forms SOOOO many times.

The story behind these pictuers is

OPNLguy has the story correct,

Some more details from being there that afternoon:
The MD-80 was at gate 115 one of the two "dungeon"gatesat the end of C-2 which is now the RJ councourse at EWR. The flight I was leaving on to BOS was leaving from gate 112 whose waiting area over looked the two dungeon gates. I was standing close to the 112 door, basicly over the 114 jetway. The MD-80 hit about 15 feet to my right. It came in very fast once it jumped the chocs, about 1.5 seconds. It was the result of an enging start up at full power because of MX fowlowing improper procedures. From my perspective I basicly stared at the plane as it came in then was like oh S#!+, we were all evacuated from that gate area rather quikly as they were not sure of the structural integrity of the building. No flights left from C-2 for the rest of that day. The BOS and DCA flights took quite a hit as C-2 was the "shuttle" concourse with some other flights. I never got out of EWR that day as all of the flights toward the North east were cancled or over booked from all of the revenue passengers. I left the next day to BOS. C-2 was closed from 110 to 117 that day. My flight left from 102 which is the gate closest to the main terminal. Nobody (pax wise) realized what had gone on the prior day, Security said that end was "under construction". The plane was removed overnight and the hole tarped over.

I guess that is about it.

That's it...

This is a post from OPNLguy from the forum which is on the same exact pictuer/story. I really don't see what's so funny about it. If it were true I would just say the airline industry has been hiring some real $hit heads to take care of their a/c...

Thanks again.
