Year in Pictures - Out: When I was looking back on 2007 and thinking about all the images that I had seen throughout the year, this was one of the pictures that immediately came to mind. Initially I saw the wreckage of the plane but as my eyes moved further into the picture, I noticed the man sitting, still strapped into the seat amongst the pieces that used to be his plane. Maybe the fact that he survived amongst all that destruction is what really attracts me to this photo. Unfortunately, this again was another one of those images that just didn't hold up to the caliber of the other photos in the edit.
Bob Roberts, the pilot of a small plane that crashed onto Interstate 95 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., sits in the remains of his plane, waiting for emergency officials to take him to the hospital for treatment, Friday, Sept. 21.
