This is a car's dash-cam footage from Mukilteo, Washington, of a small plane striking some power lines and crashing in a ball of flames. Amazingly (and thankfully), both the pilot and passenger survived the incident and nobody else was injured, although several cars were damaged by the burning fuel. "Dammit, Harrison Ford." I thought the same thing.
The pilot said he started started losing power and couldn't restart the engine. As he began to go down, he saw that Harbour Pointe Boulevard was clear and open, and steered that direction.
Snohomish County PUD said about 9,000 customers lost power in the area.
This makes me want to never leave my apartment. Of course, knowing my luck a jet engine would still crash through the roof. "Just like in Donnie Darko!" Whoa, okay, spoiler alert much? All I'm saying is the world is a dangerous place, and we should all work on our risk reduction strategies. "Says the guy who eats fireworks." Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
Keep going for the footage.
Thanks to HL, who agrees if you have to crash land your plane, the best place is right in front of a hospital.
