Plane crash filmed from inside cockpit

Thursday, August 9, 2012

Footage from two different cameras from passengers inside a small airplane show it going down in the woods, not long after take-off.

(sNSFW, pilot's banged up face)

The uploader of the video says:
Miraculously, everyone survived. The pilot will make a full recovery and the rest of us escaped with superficial injuries and feel very lucky to be alive . This trip was much anticipated and due to our excitement we had our Gopro cameras filming at various times. After flying up into the mountains for a morning hike in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness we were planning on flying to a small mountain town for dinner. Due to warming temperatures there was an increase in density altitude and we had a hard time getting adequate lift. After taking off we hit an air pocket that made us rapidly loose altitude, pushing us down into the trees. The cameras were left on for a couple of hours during the aftermath.

No offense but this plane was overloaded for the conditions. No good flying. They were very lucky.

Was the pilot to the left of the guy with the camera using an ipad when the crash happened? I wonder why they crashed..

Nowadays they can use the ipad to store digital maps and navigation data. Is clear that he didn't use it to work out the weight and balance calculations!

Everybody survived because the trees crashed the wings first, absorbing most of the energy. Very very very lucky
