And another one bit the dust:



It killed the pilot, unfortunately.

When I returned from Lukla airport from my Everest basecamp trek in 2016 and was sitting in the shuttlebus to the terminal at Kathmandu airport I was able to take a photo of this aircraft from the Nepalese Air Force. I read it crashed on May 30, 2017 on a small airstrip in Nepal. The captain was killed while both other crew members were seriously injured.

I took this photo from my local air show exactly two years ago, which crashed 22 days later:



This is the one and only aircraft that I took so far that was later involved in a serious accident.

This is a photo I took of N121JM a Gulfstream IV. It crashed May 31, 2014 in Bedford, Massachusetts killing everyone on board, including the co-owner of the Philadelphia Inquirer newspaper.

Took this just 5 days before it had the uncontained engine failure. Probably was the last picture of this aircraft

Yes, that might be last picture of her in the air. But this bird is still standing at ORD ARFF training area. Obviously is written off so no tail number. I believe that some of us from ORD AW took a picture of her during last ORD tour.

I took this Miami Air International B738 back in 2016 while spotting a Mizzou football charter for an away game; this exact aircraft (N732MA) was later involved in a runway excursion accident in Jacksonville, FL just days ago:

I have a number of shots of N732MA, Miami Air did (still does?) team charter flights for the New York Islanders, and we saw their birds in and out of KFRG regularly during the hockey season. I've also caught it a few times in the Charlotte area, at KJQF for NASCAR team flights, and a couple of times at KCLT for some charter work.

I would hope so. I'd be surprised if you managed to take the picture before you evacuated.

Sadly yes, I have taken a photo of the bird that crashed in ET302. I have photos of Lion's LQQ and LQR, but I did not get LQP on camera. Saw it flying in and out of BFI though.

Hey, thanks for stopping by! My photos can be found here: https://www.airliners.net/search?user=17 ... lay=detail

The shot of the TWA DC9 was the most errie for me knowing everyone on that plane was going to be dead in a short time.
