Capturing an image like this takes some doing. just the shock alone of the impact would have most people looking in horror, not photographing!

Tragic event. Havent seen these shots before

I believe the man behind the parked car just got steamrolled in a blaze of jet fuel fire, not to mention the three photographers in the foreground.

Mark, you demonstrate remarkable coolness by swiftly taking these pix. I would have been petrified stiff by the collision, and would have been a casualty, if I were there that summer day.

From inspecting another photograph from a different angle, it seems that indeed, the man beside the car and most probably the three photographers to the right were killed instantly as the plane crashed into them. How did Mark Carlisle get such a photo? Was he injured? Any light he can shed on his experience would be welcomed.

Actually, after looking at video of the crash (see Youtube) I highly doubt any of the pictured people were killed. The majority of the crowd is outside the frame, to the right of the three photogs. Look at the direction the plane is going: following its nose, not even close to the path of the people in the picture.

The people in the picture are not in any immediate danger. Excellent photograph of the even, as tragic as it is.

From the videos this aircraft is going to crash if not directly toward this people, then at least in very close proximity. You can watch crash from two different angles on utube videos...

I believe that this particular aircraft did not do any manage. However, the other aircrafts which were part of the formation did land in crowded area klling pilots and people on the ground too.

@ the comment below, poster from India:
This aircraft did impact directly into the crowd. The photographer and the people in the foreground were not impacted by the aircraft. Its direction of travel reletive to the photographer was left to right. Such a tragic event.

Apparently he didn't "know nothing" or anything, he crashed the damn plane
