    Default Is this real?

    Or CGI?

    There was a recent story about this on Yahoo, and i cannot stop watching
    all the youtube footage from dashcams.

    Apparently, this happened over a year ago, too.
    How did i miss it?

    I'm terrified of heights & plane crashes, in general.
    But this footage completely freaks me out.
    It literally fell out of the sky & almost onto a highway.

    And there were survivors!

    I remember when that happened. It's real. Ashley Graham got up to get peanuts.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    She must have been favoring the left side of the aisle!

    Despite the pilot's initial fuck-up, he really managed to steer the plane to avoid
    buildings & cars (even the clipped cab survived).

    This footage is the most amazing thing i've ever seen.

    If memory serves that really happened.

    It almost looks fake, it's so extraordinary.

    How did i just see this now?

    Was this a major story?
    It's frightening to me, but also fascinating.

    Had i been on that plane, i would have had Ashley Graham smother me with
    her body for a safe landing:

    One man managed to walk off the doomed jet without a scratch.
    Folks are calling miss Graham a hero!

    No kidding!

    The poor pilot uses it once, and one of the engine fails after take-off.

    Yes, it's real. Happened near me, I had to go and photograph part of the rescue operation for a news agency.

    One engine stopped just after takeoff, and instead of fully shutting it down and restarting, they shut down the engine that was working fine.

    Wow, the plane didn't go very far.

    It crashed right over the bridge & stayed there.
    I expect it to go flying everywhere after impact.

    Some survived that, which is amazing to me.

    Because they're idiots I think. They put it down to pilot error but pilot stupidity would be a better explanation.
