“Happy End” is a remarkable photo series from German photographer Dietmar Eckell.
The planes in Eckell’s photographs all had happy endings, but that doesn’t take anything away from the terror coming with plummeting from the sky in a winged metal tube.
The exact details behind these crash landings are a mystery we can’t help but wonder about.
Some of the emergency landings were in such an isolated location, it’s a miracle that survivors were ever found.
