A Youtube clip posted on August 4th offers an extremely rare first-person perspective of what it feels like to be in the passenger's seat during a plane crash.
According to the video description, the small plane crash occurred in Idaho when a group of tired hikers decided to fly back to their base after a long day. Soon after takeoff, they hit an air pocket that forced them to lose altitude and hit the trees:
This is unprecedented footage of a small airplane crash from inside the cockpit from two different views. Miraculously, everyone survived. The pilot will make a full recovery and the rest of us escaped with superficial injuries and feel very lucky to be alive . This trip was much anticipated and due to our excitement we had our Gopro cameras filming at various times.
After flying up into the mountains for a hike in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness we were planning on flying to a small mountain town for dinner. Due to warming temperatures we had a hard time gaining altitude. After taking off we hit an air pocket that made us rapidly loose altitude, pushing us down into the trees. The cameras were left on for a couple of hours during the aftermath. Thank you to all the many individuals who eventually came to our aid and took the time and effort to help in any way they could. We appreciate you more than you know.
Fortunately everyone made it out with their lives, but the aftermath of the crash is fairly graphic. Click here to watch the full clip, although we wouldn't recommend it for those with weak stomachs (due to the blood).
