    Something off the right main gear had to have gone through the fuel cell. I wonder if the fact that it was landing at more of a sideways angle due to the crosswind had anything to do with it, NTSB might want to review this one as this new video has sprung up...

It looks horrible, and infact that plane should not have been landing in those conditions, as you can clearly see the pilot has virtually no control of the plane on landing! They should have gone around! Still very scary scene!

    It's 3 people killed in the crash, not 3 people survived the crash!

    anyway it looks really nasty

    Perhaps a really nasty engine strike then... the anticollision lights on the wing tips is elevated above the ground at the time of impact making it hard to believe that the wing stuck the ground before the explosion.

    I've watched that several times and it does not appear to me that the right wing strikes the ground prior to the flames erroupting, despite the poor quality you can see where the wing tip is the entire time through the white lights on the wing, anyone else see it or is it just an illusion...

    Re:

    Man, that looked downright nasty!

    For those of you who are curious about the details, I got the following info from airdisaster.com and the NTSB site (not the actual wording, I'm just condensing the info into my own words):

    The MD 11's pilot was battling a 24-knot crosswind on final. However, just as he did the flare, the right wing slammed the ground. According to the NTSB's preliminary report, the wing and right main gear seperated from the fuselage and the aircraft flipped over, and skidded to a halt.

    200 of the 315 pax on board suffered injuries. 3 pax were killed.

    The fire was near the rear of the aircraft, which is why it looks as if though the entire aircraft was engulfed in flames.

    If that were the case, this could have been a lot worse than it actually was.
