Plane failures usually end in catastrophic disaster, but one man is trying to capture every miracle crash with a happy ending. In a series of photos entitled 'Happy End', Dietmar Eckell documents plane crashes where everyone on board survives.

This series of photos makes me think what will become of the Malaysia missing flight. There are millions of speculations going on. Sometimes it gave me goose bumps to imagine the possible catastrophic scenes.


The series is another from Eckell’s portfolio loosely themed around the concept of Restwert (“residual value” in German), which chronicles abandoned places of worship, desolate fun fairs and waterslides, derelict hotels, and more. Here’s another pic from Canada.

Dietmar Eckell traveled the world to document aviation miracles for Happy End. Not only did every passenger in the planes he photographed make it out alive but all were rescued from incredibly remote locations. "Dancing On Thin Ice, Happy End #9.1" shown here, taken in Canada in 2012.

"Never Eat More than You Can Lift, Happy End #5.1" was also taken in Canada, in 2011. For Eckell, rather than focus on the details of the wrecks, it’s important to capture each plane within its natural surroundings (and permanent home).

Way, way out in the middle of the West Sahara. Surviving a crash landing is amazing enough, but to get rescued? Sheesh. Unreal.

"The Scenic Route to Nowhere, Happy End #3.1" was taken in Mexico in 2010, and has lasted through the endless high and low tides ever since.
