UPDATE: First hour stats: Flickr views: 372 / Blog page views: 845
TV News stations are allowed to air this photograph under the license.
Last night, I uploaded this photograph to my flickr.com account using the Flock photo uploader (in ancitipation of using it on the blog). I did not realize that for some reason, the uploaded had made the photo public for a short time. Even so, 23 persons viewed it and one left a comment (which explains the old time stamp). Thanks to everyone who viewed and commented!
UPDATE #2: 5/16/07 02:06: The Taiwan Air Force released 14 of my photographs to the press today. http://www.ettoday.com/2007/05/15/301-2097203.htm
Obviously this reduces the value of the collection. There are 8 exclusive photos remaining from the continuous set.
This afternoon, the Taiwan Air Force released preliminary information on their investigation, which is rapidly drawing to a close.
I have decided to publish this, the very first photo in the series, so that the public and the press may finally appreciate how important the entire series of photographs really is.

After careful consideration, my wife and I have decided that we will sell the remaining 22 photos to the press and donate 100% of the money to a charity that we have chosen. This way, we can use this opportunity to benefit those in need and still accomplish the goal of publishing the photos. Personal profit was never our intention. We invite interested parties to contact us via email: email@example.com
Please join me in saluting the heroes of 5371. “They gave their lives to save ours”
