They're playing continued down the runway off to the end three offense and it came to stop behind me here on highway ninety one. They're telling us the the plane could be here for two days. Investigators do their work now. If you can see it but there's a fence wrapped around the body bet- playing that's the fence that the plane crashed through when it skidded off the runway leg so the real question for investigators will be why after the pilots knew that this land was not going well on a perfectly nice day. They didn't just push the throttles up. Take off again. Come around and try landing was a mechanical failure or was it poor pilot judgment. The plane's voice data recorder is being sent to washington to be analyzed the n._t._s._b.

The pilot is now being hailed a hero. The russian mishap could have been much worse. It had just taken off so all of the fuel tanks were full. If that airplane touchdown on say a frozen cornfield where maybe there were stumps sticking up or rocks it could ripped open. The belly of that airplane could rip the engines off in a way that could have created a fire with lots of fuel in the airplane. It could have been much much different outcome but yesterday's events highlight a summer of aviation accidents that began with two tragic float plane crashes in alaska killing five passengers and a pilot a month later in june.
