Photo-Blogging an Airplane Accident

Filed under: — Different River @ 10:00 pm

An Alaska Airlines plane sprung a foot-long hole and depressurized in mid-air, and one passenger named Jeremy Hermanns took some pictures and posted them, along with his version of the story, on his blog.

Then, some people posted nasty comments about his story and pictures — from IP addresses registered to Alaska Airlines!

Not exactly a way to increase confidence in their airline after a harrowing, if ultimately not terribly harmful, accident.

They even accused him of selling the pictures to the media — and thinking only of money during the emergency landing. But, he didn’t sell them; he just posted them on his blog.
