Anyone with photoshop willing to help?

I'm making a book jacket for this booking I'm reading for school. I need a picture of a plane's wing exploding. I've googled around for one, but I kept getting 9/11 photos. I have this picture of the whole plane, or this picture of the wing. I'm assuming the wing picture would be easier. If you're willing to help, then thank you very much .

The wing tip? or an engine?
A view from third person perspective? or from insode the plane?
What type of plane?

As for your links, "You do not have permission to get URL '/large/wallpaper/wminimal/Airplane_Wallpaper.jpg' from this server. "

Hmmm, I think I'd like it to be from that picture I put of the whole plane. And an explosion from the engine. Right here. It doesn't have to be extremely perfect because I'm going to make it smaller.
/edit here's the airplane pic I want to use.

Thanks! First, create a new layer and use the Lasso tool to draw a crappy star. Then fill the area with orange/flame colors. Repeat multiple times using different colors. Don't be afraid to mix it up compeletely. Put some black and yellow and red in there (or seperate layers). Then for each layer you created, go to Filters > Blur > Gassian Blur > Set level to about 20 Don't forget to put the lightest colors (Yellow and white) on top of all the layers. Resize each layer so that it looks like the fireball gets bigger.

To make the plane look like it was rocked by the explosion, create a new layer with the plane on and go to Filters > Blur > Motion Blur > Distance at about 16 The plane will be behind all of the explosion layers.

This is how I did it, but here is another way to do it: Click Here I also mixed a variation of this and the Zoom effext found here

BTW, LOL@your wing.
Just Kidding.

I liked my explosion, but it's more of a fireball than actual, like, yeah.

Is this ok?
I found a picture of an engine online so I took a few parts off of it on photoshop and edited it into the explosion. I used about 4 different explosions mixed with burning, and smearing in photoshop elements 2.0.
I'm not very good at photoshop but....tell me what you think. Hope you like it.

I probably could have done better but it's 2:30 am and my wife thinks she's in labor...so....I'm done for now
