I would greatly appreciate a larger or better version of this:

The original was done by CNN. I had a couple stored on my hard drive, but they were lost during a computer crash last year...

Thanks!

"That's Terry Thames, an American Airlines pilot, hanging out of the cockpit window. This is the first American Airlines flight returning to Washington Dulles after the skies were reopened four days after 9/11. The photo was featured in the book, Reclaiming the Sky, by Tom Murphy."

Reclaiming the Sky: 9/11 and the Untold Story of the Men and Women Who Kept America Flying Tom Murphy New York, NY : AMACOM, 2006 HV6432.7 .M87 2006

In the pages of this book, you will meet some of the people whose hard work propels a critical social and economic force--the aviation industry--and who on the morning of September 11 were suddenly thrust into front-line positions in the battle to put our nation back on its feet. For many of these men and women, and their families, the pain and after-effects of 9/11 are exceptionally acute, but their stories will serve as touchpoints for the thousands of people whose journey to closure is still ongoing

This powerful and ultimately uplifting book not only honors the heroes of September 11th, it also offers common ground to those in search of meaning and purpose in a changed world--both in and outside of the air travel industry--and gives Americans in all walks of life something they still seek five years after 9/11: the courage and strength to move forward.

Quoted from dustjacket.

One of those two flags is improperly folded.

Haven't seen the film. It could've been John Wayne Gacy's Pogo The Killer Clown and pal of the Carters (D)...

But it is a darned good one! Thanks!

I found where the original picture I was looking for was in this article here from 09-17-01:

http://archives.cnn.com/2001/US/09/17/rec.american.airlines/

But only a red X marks the spot. I’ve tried the WayBack Machine and still only find the red X. Thanks again!
