a330: Air France crash photos, amazed by guy's instinct

Sorry for posting this. We here in India, won't pay extra attention to series like LOST, and so I'v mis understood the scenario. I won't delete this as I should apologise for the mistake I have done.

Feel so sad for all the passengers including the extraordinary photographer, who kept his cool even in his last moments of life and took this photo. Hats off to him!!!

Yesterday the world saw the disappearance of an A330 Air Frane during a trans Atlantic flight between Rio to Paris. Very ironic that a day before someone got this mail of the photos taken by a passenger on a flight mins after a mid air collision, and mins before the crash of the said aircraft

Two shots taken inside the plane before it crashed. Unbelievable! Photos taken inside the GOL B 737 aircraft that was involved in a mid air collision and crashed.....

A B737 had a mid air collision with the Embraer Legacy while cruising at 35,000 feet over South America. The Embraer Legacy, though seriously damaged with the winglet ripped off, managed to make a landing at a nearby airstrip in the midst of the Amazon jungle. The crew and passengers of the Embraer Legacy had no idea what they had hit. The B737
however crashed, killing all crew and passengers on board.

The two photos attached were apparently taken by one of the passengers in the B737, just after the collision and before the aircraft crashed. The photos were retrieved from the camera's memory stick. You will never get to see photos like this. In the first photo, there is a gaping hole in the fuselage through which you can see the tailplane and vertical fin of the aircraft. In the second photo, one of the passengers is being sucked out of the gaping hole.






These photos were found in a digital Casio Z750, amidst the remains in Serra do Cachimbo. Although the camera was destroyed, the Memory Stick was recovered. Investigating the serial number of the camera, the owner was identified as Paulo G. Muller, an actor of a theatre for children known in the outskirts of Porto Alegre. It can be imagined that he was standing during the impact with the Embraer Legacy and during the turbulence, he managed to take these photos, just seconds after the tail loss the aircraft plunged. So the camera was found near the cockpit. The structural stress probably ripped the engines away, diminishing the falling speed, protecting the electronic equipment but not unfortunately the victims. Paulo Muller leaves behind two daughters, Bruna and Beatriz.

You come into the plane, you pay more money and it is not known you will survive or you will be lost. And chances of rescue in such models of planes - are not present. It is necessary to consider completely new revolutionary model passenger airplanes. I offer a new design of planes that under sitting of each passenger there was a parachute.

Poor Oceanic Flight 815 - at least we know there were some survivors.

The photos are FAKE. They are taken from a trailer for the series "Lost." Watch the first few seconds of that video here: http://urbanlegends.about.com/gi/dynamic/offsite.htm?site=http://www.youtube.com/watch%3Fv=VdD6vza8MjE
