There are two problems with what you did, first Wikipedia:Image Use Policy says it's perfectly fine for user created illustrations to be used. (Look around, you'll also find people illustrating extinct animals and events from before human history, that's because those are okay per policy.)
Second, the discussion link you provided is broken so I can't see where it took place. You aren't the first person to think what you do, or to remove images from articles, but they always get put back unless a better, free, image exists. I'd recommend fixing what you did so others don't have to. (If you look at my talk page, there's more than one message of appreciation for the same images, so rest assured sooner or later they'll be put back.) Anynobody (talk) 16:56, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
- First of all, sorry for having provided you wih an incorrect link. Here is the correct one:  I notice that you have already found it anyway and joined the discussion there. You are very welcome to do so! I voiced my opinion that these aircrash images are a violation of WP:OR and WP:NPOV, and I stand to it. --FoxyOrange (talk) 17:40, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
