New Video of Deadly Aspen Plane Crash

Chilling new video shows the terrifying moment a private jet crashes into the runway of the Aspen, Colorado airport earlier this month, CNN’s Ana Cabrera reports.

Surveillance cameras positioned around the runway capture each harrowing moment of the plane’s failed landing.

The small plane approaches the runway, then aborts landing because of difficult conditions.

Minutes later, in the eerie black and white video, the pilot appears to attempt to abort the second landing as well, but tragically, he’s too late.

The plane nosedives, flipping upside-down on impact, and skids down the runway.

Ground workers race to the scene and watch in horror as the plane bursts in the distance.

Three people were on board. One injured co-pilot was released from the hospital last week, while one remains hospitalized. The third man was killed at the scene of the crash.
