I remember this photo from 1962, of a pre-production Lightning crashing....amazing shot! (the Pilot Survived with several Broken Bones) when he smashed through a Greenhouse full of Tomatoes)

Glad he made it out, it seemed like he would smash the ground without the para opening. Guess partial aperture and thats why the broken bones. Had to be terryfying

Somewhere, there's a WW2 shot of a Stuka crashing into a town, well behind a building that was near the camera, and the Stuka is nosing down seemingly right into the chimney of the much nearer building.

looking at this picture I'm allways amazed he didn't died in big ball of fire/debris being that close but I think perspective is at play here
