Exclusive pictures: Thomas Cook leaking fuel after take off

I received the following interesting pictures from Simone Bovi. The images were taken on Feb. 21, 2010, at Turin Caselle airport by Beppe Miglietti (who I thank you for providing the opportunity to share them on this site) and depict a Thomas Cook B757-200 serialled G-TCBA experiencing fuel leakage from the right wing shortly during take off. The aircraft was compelled to return to Caselle where it performed a successful emergency landing.
