Always sad to see a great plane's last moments intact.
Glad no one was seriously hurt.
The collapse of the aft fuselage was particularly hard to watch.
Brilliant FAA animation which clearly illustrates everything without any unnecessary detail.

Pretty slow response time from the fire brigade.

The fire crews got there just in the nick of time eh? Though note the lone ground crew member attacking #2 with a handheld bottle. Kudos to him. And next time, if you see a pilot running away from a burning aircraft; try to keep up...:rolleyes:
My briefing to jumpseaters: if we call for evacuation, keep running till you pass me.
