Although there have been no reports of serious injuries, photographs taken from the other side of the crashed plane indicate just how close Delta 1086 came to a much more disastrous fate.
Even passengers not onboard who were hoping for a smooth day of travel are out of luck, as LaGuardia will be closed for most of the day.
