Gottröra airplane crash

This day twenty years ago (27/12 1991) the Gottröra airplane crash occured.

A plane crashed outside the small town/village Gottröra in Sweden and - as seen below - the plane was divided into three parts but all the passengers survived, even though some of them were badly injured, one paralyzed, if I remember correctly.

This photo and others were cabled out around the world and the accident was described as a miracle, the pilots being hailed as heroes.
The pilots were not responsible for the accident but thanks to their professionalism, one could avoid a total catastroph.
