For anyone that has been paying attention to Internation News you most likely have seen or read the Air France plane that crashed at Toronto Pearson Intl. Airport that they are calling the "Miracle Plane" because not one person died on it. Well this is a picture that I was contracted to take at the G.T.A.A. (Toronto Pearson Intl. Airport) it is the very firefighters that would have been saving lives Tuesday Augest 2nd 2005 This was a test burn that they did where they have a mockup plane and intentially set fire to it, very impressive set up and i would love to post the rest of the set but I cant for different reasons. Please leave feedback

This is a professional photo, alright. I like the placement of the subject and the weird wavy watery effect you have on part of the image. I don't know what that thing is to the left, though. It makes a good frame, but I find it a bit distracting. I say that only, because I feel like I have to pick *something* out to pick on. It's really a wonderful image. Not a good desktop because it's busy, but a good image in general. I'm glad you posted it here.

the thing to the left is the actual plane that they intentially set fire to

if you are ever flying in or out of pearson it is the closest thing to the bottom of the radar tower (the tower that looks like a huge golfball)

I don't know what's more impressive. Your photo or your tremendous respect and admiration for firefighters. I feel the heat, courage, and desperation in this image. Well done.

Well done Jeff! You captured the 'heat' coming from the flames. Being a Mom of a Firefighter, I know more than I want to sometimes. The water spray is excellent. The "looking thru a glass block' effect in front of the firefighter is amazing. This is something you see when you are on the scene of a live fire, but is often not captured in photo's. I knew what the object to the left was, but again, that comes from first-hand knowlede. I salute all the firefighters world-wide & wish them to be safe. These test burns are just as dangerous as any fire Job well done. Thanks for posting this :~)

The heat waves are fabulous! They really help to put the action and urgency into this photo.

Wonderful shot, Jeff! Don't know how close you were to those flames, but it is truly awesome the way you captured the distortion caused by the tremendous heat of those flames! Very nice job!

This is a totally amazing shot. From reading the comment i know it was a set up but the scale of the fire, and the heat radiating from it. This must have been quite an intense thing to witness. It just blows me away. Amazing work! 10/10

What an astounding photograph !! You can almost feel the heat radiating from your desktop !! Fantastic !!! From the excellent colors to the heat distortion you captured, I just don't know where to start. But in my opinion, these guys do NOT get enough credit for the job they do. I'm just glad you were there, & you were able to give your cheer for firefighters worldwide. I'm cheering too.

What an amazing capture of action. And just as well this wasn't a real accident (because i guess it wouldn't be right to take photos of that). However this photo is spectacular, and i couldn't give it anything but 10! Also into Favs.

Hmm ... not sure what I can add to what has already been said and written.

I will try to encapsulate in a few words my praise ... and I quote one of the above member's comments ... "This is a professional photo."

Great shot.
