Judging by the limb placement in that picture, someone naughty wasnt wearing their seatbelt.

Obviously reading the map and not paying attention where they were going...

If that's a crash, the plane's DM is porked! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Seriously though, I hope they walked away from that.

Good hunting,

If you read the caption, it says there was a nosegear failure on landing... Awful close landing to those other planes! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

The extreme foreshortening caused by the telephoto lens makes the background planes look MUCH closer than they appear. They're probably at least 100 ft away.

Everybody does it eventually. Nothing to be embarrassed about.

This is a real Yak 52 crashsite. 1 dead, one heavily injured. And that's how it looked like for fighters back then.

Is that a porn mag stuck to the top of the canopy?

I hope they were all unhurt.

No it's a Where's Waldo book aka a sectional.

That B-24 shot wasn't a taxi accident, it was taken in Romania, the plane fell out of control, all crewmembers were killed on impact, no survivors.

Here is a complete sequence of images of the accident.

Apparently there were no serious injuries, but I think that the aircraft was a write-off.

Hello everyone!

Concerning the Liberator, it was a takeoff accident in Italy:

"Six men met instant death in the accident which left this Fifteenth Air Force B-24 Liberator Bomber balanced squarely on her crushed nose. An accidental application of brakes during take off on a mission is thought to have caused the freak accident. At the time this picture was taken, rescue crews had not been able to reach the bodies of the crewmen in the nose"

Concerning the RV-7, I would not put this A/C as a write-off; it seems that the canopy supporting structure has been crumpled somewhat, but noother large structural damage seems visible. Most probably the engine is good for a teardown, without mentioning the replacement of front gear, propeller, spinner and repair of some other bruised sheet metal. RV aircraft are quite sturdily made...

I think the brakes had to be applied on every takeoff, shortly after leaving the ground, in order to retract the gears. Fully loaded B-24 takeoffs were hair-raising. I guess the best position for takeoff was being the rear gunner, but when a plane crashed on takeoff and blew up with its full bombload, it didn't matter.
