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.
