joeashbubemma : No woman, no screaming. Well done men, stay calm, survive.

Maximun2k12 : Real hero for not recording in portrait mode...

Michael Ma : And he had low battery. As if his day couldn't get any worse.

dan kuettel : Reading the video description cracks me up: "appears to have been taken from inside the plane..." OH no, I thought that the passenger was hanging outside the fuselage and had his arm inside the window, but thankfully no. Your description cleared that up for me.

Eddie Brock : The plane chrashed because of the weight of this guy's balls!

Sandile Ngwenya : This is the scariest thing I've ever watched on YouTube. The cameraman is brave for not screaming, wow.

DJ DA VINCI : Lose an engine in a twin... The other takes you to the scene of the crash. Pilot proverb.

WJ De Vries : Seemed the guy was panicking more about his low battery on his phone than the fact these may just be his last few seconds on earth.

laiba Rao : My flight is on sunday wish me luck guys😥😥😥

Rach C : Strapped in like 2 seconds before landing, but at least he got it on video.....priorities😵

Rain Coast : Twin engine common pilot mistake after losing one engine. Full power on remaining engine for too long. Commit to forced landing site. Cut power and set air frame to glide mode. Do not deploy landing gear. Land as slow as possible without stalling the wing.

bondovwvw : I guess he did not have his phone on airplane mode?

Daniel de Kock : Felt like I was in the plane... scary as hell! Bird came down hard and fast. No flaps? Perhaps hydraulic lines severed? Surprised so few fatalities.

Donna Pierce : Praise God they survived

BEZ LOHOTRONA : Жесть!!!

bitcoin web design : As dit ek was sou hulle dai video moes mute!

jeff schnablegger : Thank you for Flying Wakandan Airlines.

Corne Mouton : Dit is voorwaarlik rof, wonderwerk dat meeste oorleef het, sterkte aan die oorledenes se families.

Jman G : I love that he put filming the video above his safety, now i can't be mad he didn't film properly.

FPVREVIEWS : So that's pretty much what's wrong with twins that do not counter rotate. in order to save money, both engines are the same, and props rotate in the same direction. In this case, the plane lost it's critical engine, leaving only the one that rotates in the wrong direction. the torque, P pastor, and slipstream effect all worked to decrease performance, along with the drag from the bad engine. If the opposite engine had failed, it would likely have been quite a different outcome. I'm a huge fan of twins, and other multi engine aircraft, especially distributed E propulsion, but they are given a bad name by setups like this. Too bad, it was a gorgeous aircraft. We're already building better aircraft for the future, so all will be OK..

Mouthy Mama : Maybe they shouldn’t have fired all the white engineers and pilots and they may have been safe. R.I.P. to the people who lost their lives.

inkydoug : I was glad to hear people moving around after it hit the ground.

Rodger Draper : Talented pilot

TopsideOne : Reminds me of Madagascar 2 😐🦁✈️

Louis Haycock : Sjoe! Baie gelukkig

Дмитрий Рубаха : Зашибись слетали отдохнуть...

f4cphantom2 : Thank you for flying KneeGrow Airlines...

5445656454654654o : "DIversity" is our srength. subhuman 70 iq animals and high performance engineering.. Not a good mix

Ophiuchus123456789 : He's very relaxed, considering the circumstances.

James McDowell : We're here!!! Thanks for flying with us today.

Alex Thomas : I don't understand this - not sure if the CV 340 has fire handles or what? Fuel doesn't seem to be cut-off.. prop doesn't look like it's feathered either? Also there's hardly any maneuvering - just random turns into the ground. There's also no flaps, no calls to the cabin, and no flare before impact. Absolutely incredible that anyone survived.

J S : question ... was the take off on 29

Mike G : Been better if he'd held the camera still while crashing.... spoiled the vid for me

Martinski Egtgeheim : It was not on a "pleasure flight", it was a test flight with aviation officials on board. It was the last test flight before the plane was going to fly to The Netherlands, where the Convair would be stay in a aviation museum. This Convair was bought by the museum Aviodrome at Lelystad Airport.

preston121068 : Love how the biggest crisis on this guys mind is he has a low battery on his camera.

Jones J : Apartheid plane

Sawyer : lol they were about to crash and the guy was so calm and just saying "well, this is getting very bad" XDDDDD lol

Mini MrCoops : Omgg impressive how some survived!!!

Pilot Faris : Real brave and strong man, everyone on emergency landings usually feel panic,but after watching this video, I feels there is a few people exist

pearlmax : I'll bet all the townsfolk were wondering what the boom was.

Pilot Faris : Pilots :We are not afraid in crash landings but we are afraid to not fly anymore

bruno balzani : *Don't forget to put flight-mode on*

SWA8080 : The title is "apparently" accurate.

21boxhead : that's why i always sit in the back of the plane

Jj Ts : south african nogs can't into technology

essel23fly : A Luxury safari flight on a plane built like 60 years ago??? WW2 had only been over a few years when this plane was built. You couldn’t pay me enough to get on it let alone in Africa

Jamal69 Jackson : God damned gremlins always chewing up fuel lines on airplanes 😡

SANAFABICH : "Apparently"...

Rather be racist than extinct : Scary stuff wow

Steve Parker : Scary 💩.
