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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

BEZ LOHOTRONA : Жесть!!!

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 and 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..

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

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.

Rodger Draper : Talented pilot

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

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

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

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.

Robert Cornelius : Arabs?

TopsideOne : Reminds me of Madagascar 2 😐🦁✈️

f4cphantom2 : Thank you for flying KneeGrow Airlines...

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

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

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

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

Mini MrCoops : Omgg impressive how some survived!!!

Rather be racist than extinct : Scary stuff wow

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

SWA8080 : The title is "apparently" accurate.

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

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

Jones J : Apartheid plane

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

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

Kwale Malayenini : This is very bad indeed. This 65 year old plane belonged to the museum. One engine failure shouldn't have ended this bad. Modern plane can fly back to the nearest airport with one engine.

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.

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

sweiland75 : I'm no plane expert but a 65 year old plane sounds too old to me.

Saider M : This is for you non-believers. Where are the atheist? You want evidence that Jesus saves? There you go, the plane did not go up in flames. Thank God...

Louis Haycock : Sjoe! Baie gelukkig

rc70ys : No such word as worser!!!!!

Дмитрий Рубаха : Зашибись слетали отдохнуть...

Orion789 : Really wish someone had stood up and immediately asked if it was too soon to ask for a refund...

MrCk1234567890 : This is literally my worst fear

Fetchdafish : Another happy landing.

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

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

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

F Mills : Now we know where they use BOOM in the name.

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

Geforce2187 : This is the same type of plane that killed the entire band Lynyrd Skynyrd
