Airplane on fire caught on video

Yes the Fokker caught fire! Amazingly enough, that is a kind of plane.

1-2-2008 Tehran, Iran
An Iran Air plane carrying 100 passengers skidded off the runway after part of its wing caught fire on take-off from a Tehran airport. On take off in snowfall, the F-100 aircraft suffered a failure in the left engine. The F100 then ran off the side of the runway, caught fire, skidded onto the military ramp and came to near the right wing of a 747 belonging to the Iranian Air Force.


All on board were able to escape with no or minor injuries.
The aircraft was gutted by flames before airport fire service arrived.

crazy crashes you really gotta wonder about

So exactly how the hell do some of these boats, trains and planes end up in the odd positions they are in… this giant ship for instance, I don’t think it really belogs on its side.

how did the boat fall over - cruise ship accident

and these people here should realize they are riding in a boat and not on top of a school of salmon

boat crash up river

We all know airplanes need gas, but you would never expect the passenger jet to crash into your local Chevron to get itplane crash passenger jet crashes into gas station

This one really makes you scratch your head. What is a train doing coming out of a building?

odd train crash, old train crashes into a building

Worst air show plane disaster ever

This is a disaster at an air show in Oregon, This is the worst air show disaster ever recorded and I believe 85 people got killed, including a pilot. They say this may have been caused by a bird getting into the engine, but do not rule out pilot error and risky stunts.

Here is a news cast of what looks like the same fighter crash, It was a Russian (Ukrainian) plane that caused the crash
