Carolyn Cross says it's a miracle she and the other passengers are still here.
She suffered a bash to the head; knee, hip and back injuries; and her teeth still need to be fixed.
A year ago today, a small plane tried to return to YVR from a flight to Kelowna, but crashed landed just short of the runway, in the middle of a busy road.
Cross often remembers the flames and twisted metal, but also recalls the courage of the bystanders who rushed to help them.
"When I look at the photos, had a chance to see the site, I'm really in awe of their bravery. I'm in awe of their willingness to risk themselves for perfect strangers. And I'm really impressed with the way that they all worked together with utmost efficiency to make the most amount of benefit for everyone."
All seven passengers survived, but the pilots died shortly after of their burns.
Federal safety officials have yet to release what caused the crash.
