Terryfing GoPro footage of Hawaiian plane crash from inside the cabin

Hopefully, this is the closest you’ll ever get to be aboard an aircraft crashing into the water.

The dramatic video was filmed by Ferdinand Puentes, a passenger of a Cessna Grand Caravan plane that ditched off the coast of Hawii on Dec. 11, 2013, killing a woman.

The plane, with nine people on board, departed from Molokai, Hawaii, to Honolulu.

According to the reports, shortly after take off, with the plane still climbing, the engine suffered an unspecified failure.

The pilot managed to perform a successful ditching procedure and passengers orderly evacuated the plane, using debris to stay aloft until they were rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard.

Unfortunately, one of the passenger who had managed to escape the sinking plane, died. It’s unclear what caused the death of Loretta Fuddy and this has fueled conspiracy theories because she was the public official who released Barak Obama’s birth certificate in 2011.

Stunning GoPro video of what passengers don’t see when flying an Airbus 340

Shot with GoPro cameras attached to Air Tahiti Nui‘s Airbus 340, the following footage is particularly interesting as it shows ground and air ops around the wide body from several points of view during scheduled services to/from French Polynesia.

Something passengers don’t see when flying an A-340 (which is also operated by some VIP or military services, as the Royal Brunei Airlines, Qatar Amiri Flight, Arab Republic of Egypt Government, Saudi Arabia Air Force, The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and the French Air Force – formerly even Gaddafi had one).
