Look at all the black shit coming out of the windows, but ONLY the windows over the wing. People always like a seat near the wing, but they wouldnt if they knew that the wings are just glorified fuel tanks that are always the first to go.

I think that the fire fighter in the airport have very low reaction and not professional .If the fire fighter would come earlier the aircraft was not ruined like that.
