It would appear that the 138 people aboard this A320 that crash-landed at Halifax's Stanfield Airport owe a debt of gratitude to the engineers at Airbus for a sturdy design. Canada's Transportation Safety Board's photos show just how close they came to disaster.
Each week, we go through dozens (and sometimes hundreds) of reader-submitted photos and pick the very best to share with you on Thursday mornings — and one photo that stands above the others is awarded an AVweb baseball cap as our "Picture of the Week."
