Better on the ground than in the air

Posted by Anuradha Saturday, September 13, 2008

Short of the actual crash, most of the accidents depicted here occurred without loss of human life, and thus can be described as "Oops". There is a site "Aviation Safety" where many troublesome situations are listed and discussed, with full background information for each. What you will see here is a collection of images from various such occasions, sent to us by readers who found them or even witnessed the events.

On the Ground

The hazards start while the plane is still on the runway. Most of the time they are results of the "reckless driving" of the taxiing & service vehicles.



The accident above happened fairly recently - winter 2005 or 2006. The plane slid off the runway in the snow. A six year-old passenger in one of the cars on the street was killed.
