This is the second shot in the series. It demonstrates how important these photos are because it’s possible to triangulate the altitude of 5371 if the position of the camera is known (and it is, of course) by using the position and size of the Stationary Point of Reference (SPoR). In this case, it’s the water tank and the pipes.
Local time is now 03:34 and I can’t sleep. I can’t stop thinking about the men who died. What bothers me is that the military released their report and they ruled pilot error, and they used my photographs in that determination. This has taken a toll on me. The respect and admiration that I have for those 2 men seems insignificant in the face of blame.
May 11th changed my life. I witnessed something profound – something that initially thrilled me but later greatly saddened me. The only consolation that I can find is that hopefully, information derived from my photos and eyewitness account will help future pilots from meeting the same end. Please forgive me for what I saw.
