Spanair 5022 crash video published by Elpais.com

The Spanish newspaper El Paìs has just published on his website a video of the Spanair 5022 crash, recorded by the airport’ surveillance camera. Unfortunately the video is not clear as it shows the aircraft rotating after a long take off roll, then, the next frames show the aircraft already skidding next to the runway; the footage doesn’t show the MD-82 reaching a few hundred feet and falling, possibly because of a lack of lift.
The video has been already uploaded to youtube:
