Is that Monza? Jeez that's wet, if it was F1 it would be red flagged.

Kubica is back in Rallying and has been dominating Rally Canarias by winning every single stage over the previous champions in his rookie season. However, he's also back to crashing into guard rails...

Reality hits home when your boss asks you to pull out all the certification docs for the units on one of your aircraft because it's crashed! Sad pale

Bloody hell Chris - I saw a video of this yesterday!!

I'm sure I'd read that the flight crew had radioed to say that the cargo had shifted backwards - it was carrying military vehicles I believe?!?

I've never seen a 747 stall like that, it appears to almost come to a complete stop in the air Shocked

Does look like it could be a shift in cargo to me, but I'm no expert, and have no evidence to suggest so, or otherwise.

Looks like the angle of ascent is way too high, the aircraft stalls and the pilot just manages to get it righted before impact (probably would have been a skilful save if it all happened at a higher altitude).

I wish I could remember where I read about the details - it was probably only conjecture anyway but it did seem to be consistant with what can be seen in the video.

Whatever happened it's a horrible loss of innocent lives Crying or Very sad

All i know was my brother was flying into bagram on plane like that, and my intial reaction was worried he was on it.

Only after watching it a second time i realized the plane was taking off and he hadn't left for bagram yet after he called me.

Thought and prayers go out to to the families and those affected.

chris ge engines where on the plane, could of been old pag RR unit!!!!!

We all had emails about this as looks like we had initial reports was a RR engine

Looks like Cargo getting loose from initial reports and way engines stalled may have to been to blame see aivition weekly reports etc

Thrust on PW or GE or RR engine would not of been able to stop this very very said Sad

Hmmmm was a DOD contracted flight though?

hole crap, that must have been terrible to have seen that happen. I heard the cargo shifted to the back of the plane and put it into a stall. Sad

I reckon he's one of the chavvy kids who thinks just lowering the car, adding spacers and sticking a phat turbo and exhaust makes it much better Razz I can't see why else a Civic would slide out on a corner like that... Unless I'm mistaken, that looks like the corner at the top of the hill before Adenauer Forst. Any regular FWD car should be able to take that without massive issue.

If you lower a car you've got to do it properly, kids!
