5 More Weird plane crashes. Hopefully you saw part 1 of the video with weird and bizarre plane crashes. Part 2 is now out. These are really bizarre again!
5. U.S. Army B-25 – 1945
A U.S. Army Air Force B-25 crashed into the 79th floor of the Empire State Building in fog, killing 3 aboard and 11(!) on the ground.
4. BSAA Avro Lancastrain – 1947
This crash itself wasn't "special" but wreckage of the plane was found on January 19, 2000, 53 years after the plane had vanished, when pieces of wreckage from the missing aircraft began to emerge from the glacial ice. This remined us a lot of the Malasian airline crash, lets just hope that, that plane doesn't take 50 years to be found…
3. United Air Lines DC-6 – 1948
Carbon dioxide extinguishers were discharged in response to a fire warning in the cargo hold. The plane's nose was lowered for an emergency descent and due to a design flaw, carbon dioxide entered the cockpit and rendered the crew unconscious after which the plane crashed killing all 43 aboard.
2. British Airways BAC-111 – 1990
A large section of windshield fell away from the aircraft midflight. The decompression pulled the captain out from under his seatbelt. Despite trying to hold onto the yoke, the captain was sucked out into the opening. A steward in the cockpit was able to grab hold of his legs. The copilot wearing full restraints made an emergency landing at Southampton. The captain remained half way out of the aircraft for 15 minutes and suffered only frostbite and some fractures. Improper bolts used to replace the windshield two days earlier resulted in the accident.
1. Filair – 2010
A passenger brought aboard a crocodile hidden in a sports bag. The crocodile escaped, causing a panic among passengers who all rushed to one end of the plane. This caused an imbalance in the aircraft which led to loss of control and a crash. 20 People died.
