We've been royally had, and the only saving grace is that so have thousands of others. Our thanks to an adroit reader who found the photos of the American Airlines MD-80 from the original series, sans fire and smoke, on a French Web site that carried a fairly lively discussion (as far as our high school French could determine) on our faux pas.

The original photo was taken by Tim Lane and appeared on Airliners.net.
