No one who flies frequently wants to give much thought to plane crashes, but the reality is that they happen, and they are not pretty. These (literally) breathtaking photos of airplane crashes serve as a reminder that even though air travel is one of the safest methods of transportation, things can, and do go wrong.
From plane crashes on land to airplanes landing in the sea, these airline disaster photos show what can go wrong when you're piloting tons of steel through the air (or into the land). Many of these pictures of bad plane landings are not for the faint of heart, but are far from the worst pictures of plane crashes you'll ever see. These once in a lifetime pictures of planes crashing MIGHT scare you out of flying, but if you've ever gotten into a car after seeing Red Asphalt, you'll be able to deal with flying again after seeing these plane crash pictures. Maybe. Eventually.
