BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- Nkosi Lumumba thought it was a predawn summer thunderstorm.


The young carpenter was jolted awake in his house on 90th Street North, rattled by a rumble like he'd never felt. He got up, looked out his windows and didn't see any rain.


"Nah, a thunderstorm doesn't sound like that," thought Lumumba, 38.


It wasn't until cars streamed by his house about 20 minutes later that he learned what the rumble was. He went down the street to see a broken Airbus A300 ablaze, its contents strewn about.


UPS Flight 1354 -- inbound from Louisville, Ky. -- clipped trees and power lines and crashed into the barren hilltop short of Runway 18 at Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport -- not far from Lumumba's home -- just before 5 a.m. Aug. 14, 2013.
