That is a truly amazing picture! Probably the only one of this kind in the entire database. Usually, accident pics show wrecked trains or cars.

Looks like you captured the moment in this photo.

I think I'll take the train... Nice shot.

Good work! I read about the crash in the news briefs yesterday and recall it saying the plane just stopped short of the railway line.....

I hope no one was hurt, good shot though.

It's a cargo plane, no injuries.

Looks like a cargo 747 as it has no windows.

Some of the crew were injured, but since this was a cargo plane there were no passengers.

I thought it was a misplaced Airliners.net picture!

Even though it's a cargo plane, it shows that trains are safer than airplanes in general!

Great idea for a photo.

This is a old 100 or 200 series (no winglets, short top deck) 747 that probably has many thousand flight hours under its belt... Must have started as a passenger plane in the 60's, and later rebuilt to cargo specs... It probably fractioned into pieces that way because of metal fatigue, cracks, and other problems that high-hour airplanes all experience.

Next time, take the train! an old Santa Fe billboard.

Great shot, Wim! Could this be the first accepted photo at both RailPictures and JetPhotos?
Posted by Mike Bjork on June 2, 2008 
So why is this on RailPictures.net?
Posted by Kyle Tribianni on June 9, 2008 
Great shot! This is proof that rail travel beats air travel! And good thing this was not a passenger aircraft...
