I watched this plane explode in the air after touching down and the pwr up to go around. Its a day I will never forget. I heard the explosion then looked up to see it coming down on fire. As it hit I could see the fire ball going down the runway.And thinking I new the crew and praying they can make it out. I was happy to hear when they announced the crew dogs were alive. We spent Christmas in the hospital with them. I remember walking into the hanger where the plane laid to rest and the eire feeling. It was almost 25 years ago and I can remember it like yesterday.
Thanks for the comment. That must have been quite an experience.
