Sure, FedEx is loved by everybody. And UPS has that brown-uniform cachet thing happening. But, writes Colby Cosh, DHL is the bravest courier firm of them all.

UPDATE. Todd McKenzie has an exclusive image of the damaged UHL cargo jet and a first-hand account of its emergency landing.

I have a picture up of the aircraft on the ground on my blog. Having been part of the DHL empire previously I still have a few mates there who send me interesting stuff like .the ground crews report on the plane being hit.

Strange that I haven't heard reports of DHL no longer doing business in Iraq.

Are they crazy? If it's too dangerous for the UN, the Red Cross, Oxfam and other assorted hangers on what the f does DHL think they are doing.

Someone could get hurt!
