Shame on you khayman.

So fear = 2 pictures during the flight?

Some “photojournalist”!

Gimme a break.

Apparently Reuters will hire anyone with a camera to take pictures.

Where do I send my portfolio?

It is always much better to take the credit than the blame.

At the time my mother remarked how nervous she was since we were all together on one plane. Reading this, now I see that situation in a different light – your story is an excellent example of turning a negative (but uncontrollable) situation into something constructive and positive. Glad it turned out well!

I couldn’t explain other than for the fact that it’s what I do. This has helped me realise why I did it. Thank you, what a moving post and I’m happy everyone was safe. Like Regina Spektor says in her song, ‘Laughing With’… “No one laughs at God when their airplane start to uncontrollably shake”

Great photos under tremendous stress!
Did this aircraft also have Rolls-Royce Trent Engines?

So really, no official statements from the crew or flight attendants while this was happening? Scary!
