Most of those wouldn't have looked so bad if they hadn't been rotting in the forest for fifty years.

I personally would never fly in a rusted out plane. But maybe that is just me.

So he convinced a bunch of people to pay for his around-the-world holiday during which he took some, admittedly very nice, happy snaps of crashed planes?

The guy is a freakin genius!

From the website, looks like he's still doing a lot of convincing. For instance, $9 for the making-of video.

Of course there are the ones that don't go so well.

so then, the landscape is littered with these damn flying machines that couldn't?  Nobody tidies up afterwards?
Seems like a messy waste.

I'm looking for funding for my cocktail table book of road kill.  Due out later this summer.

That one gets bonus points because it wasn't even a write-off. That thing flew for another 25 years at Air Canada.

In that vein, there's also Air Transat Flight 236:

Canadians seem to be good at gliding airliners.

Air Transat 236 didn't have as hard of a landing as the Gimli Glider, though. It landed (relatively) safely.
