HD video from inside a small plane crash

More amazing footage from yet another small plane crash. No one died in this crash, so don’t worry. Though the footage gets a bit gory at one point, just fyi.

Here’s some background from the guys who made the video and were in the crash:

This is unprecedented footage of a small airplane crash from inside the cockpit from two different views. 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. The cameras were left on for a couple of hours during the aftermath. Thank you to all the many individuals who eventually came to our aid and took the time and effort to help in any way they could. We appreciate you more than you know.

    Yeah I was surprised he didn’t warn folks that things were iffy. Probably didn’t want to alarm them, but still. How could you tell about the runway and not getting enough lift – basically he should have been higher at the point we saw the runway at the beginning of the film?

    Yeah I was wondering about that. I wonder if it was some navigation app or something.

    The plane had already used up all of the runway and had still not lifted up.
    Very poor judgement on the pilot’s part…then after another two minutes the aircraft had
    still not gotten above tree top level. No warning to passengers to prepare for possible
    bad landing or crash. Lucky no one was killed!

    Was that an Ipad in the pilot’s hand during the crash?

    I’m glad everyone will be okay.
