A passenger was filming as the classic Convair’s left engine developed a major problem just after takeoff in South Africa last week. The plane crashed moments later killing one crew member. The rest of the passengers and crew on board survived.
It’s amazing how calm everyone remained during and after touchdown. It’s not everyday we get footage from inside a plane as it goes down either. Remarkable that only one person died.
The takeoff was also filmed from the outside and you can see the engine starting to smoke.
