  • Ever caught a plane which then crashed?

    Anyone has taken pictures of a plane which subsequently crashed?

    Personally I have shot three.



    RAF Canberra T.4 in celebratory colour schemes marking the 50th anniversary of the Canberra. This plane crashed some time later due to an engine failure on approach.



    Tuninter ATR-72 TS-LBB, which recently ditched off Palermo. (The Air France A340 got a headline banner, this one was deemed unworthy) This is the only pic on this database in the old colours.



    Ex-Israeli Air Force A-4 Skyhawk, which was sold to a civilian operator in the US for use in private fast jet pilot training. Aircraft suffered engine failure and did not make it home...

    To many to all sum them up. More than a dozen....

    I think you can understand that the AF crash had way more publicity and impact than the Tuninter crash (the first A340 crash and a major airline), we can't add a ticket entry for every crash... how sad these things are when they happen.

      No, but I personally flew on some planes that later crashed (including the AM DC9 that was damaged completely at REX, and my dad flew many times in CBE's N912FJ, Jetstream 32 that crashed into a mountain 5 years ago)

        been there

        I've flown in TS-LBB myself. I had sat for a good hour in the Canberra, just to soak in the patina of this classic bomber...

        I also flew aboard an Mi-8, flown by the Bulgarian pilot who was later shot dead by insurgents in Iraq after his helo was downed. RIP

              And I guess the Helios 737 was also much more important... the A340 got a headline, the ATR didnt and the 737 (surely not the first 737 crash, and not a major airline) got it. Is there something especially unhot about an ATR?

                I photographed the final pass of the RNHF Firefly at Duxford in 2003. About 2 minutes after the photograph was taken, the pilots and aircraft were gone I havent ever tried to upload the shot of that final ever pass out of respect.

                  Just what Erwin said - when we give every crash a ticker we would soon end up with dozen new entries every day of damaged Cessnas - and no I am not comparing the ATR crash with a GA incident. The Helios Air is on of the worst crashes in Europe since years and the 'misterious' circumstances (frozen passengers, ....) add fuel to the fire for the media. I guess it is quite easy to understand why this one got a ticker.

                  On a side note I find it morally incorrect to try to make profit (gain a few crappy hits) from such a bad thing where many people lost their lives. End of discussion from my side.

                    I happened to have both flown and photographed G-EMBD before it's recent incident in HAJ (14/08.05).

                    Edit - photo thumbnail didn't work so this will have to do -

                      I've caught N403CF several times before she crashed in Durango.

                        I have several picture of MD-11 HB-IWF which our team had just flown in from Montreal-Mirabel to Zurich in July 1996. It was the same aircraft that crashed into to the Atlantic of Peggy's Cove, NS in 1998 enroute JFK-Geneve as Swissair 111.

                          I actually got a picture of one while it was crashing.

                            That I know of:

                            -UA 767 used in the terrorist attacks at twice.

                            -AirFrance A340 that crashed in Toronto once.

                            -NW airlink CRJ that crashed last year once.

                            And I got the Northwest DC-9 that collided with the A319 at MSP before and after the accident.

                              Here a photo of the AA B767 which hit tower 1 of the WTC on 9/11.
                              The photo was made 3 years prior to the crash at ZRH airport.

                              Furthermore, when I worked at Fokker I made a trip with the PH-KXL http://www.jetphotos.net/viewphoto.php?id=278667 & http://www.jetphotos.net/viewphoto.php?id=278660
                              Fokker 100 which later flew for Macedonian Airlines and crashed.
                              Also I flew in the PH-DDA http://www.jetphotos.net/viewphoto.php?id=273806 ehich crashed later into the Waddenzee. All people on board were killed.

                              Cheers,
