Absolute miracle that there were no fatalities, especially considering that the whole aircraft caught fire after the crash

When building aircraft make sure no parts are left over

kudos on the photographer to capture a lone engine torn from the wing

Dosen't look like those reverse thrusters worked to well... Oh well, no fatalities, thats all that matters. It's a shame that far east runway at YYZ is short. 24R I believe.

Everytime I go on airliners.net and I look at the thumbnails, I ask myself "Why, how did that happen again?" And then I realise... ;-)
Anyway a rare shot, I am very glad that everyone survived. It's worth calling it "The wonder of Toronto"!
