Re: Pics of the DHL Airbus that got hit in Baghdad

They were damn lucky they were landing and not taking off. For those that don't know, most fuel in aircraft are carried in the wings. Had those tanks been loaded.....let's not go there.

I'll gladly fly with that crew, just not in Iraq.

That is amazing. That crew have my respect that they actually got it on the ground in 1 piece. I would guess even the cargo survived!

Stunning!

That would have required some skill...great work by the pilots.

Re: Pics of the DHL Airbus that got hit in Baghdad

I'm amazed that the thing stayed in the air at all . . .
Heh, I bet the crew were glad when they landed that they hadn't seen the wing either...
Airbus should be grabbing this as an advertisement on the durability of their aircraft . . .
