Plane crash filmed inside cockpit

Plane crash filmed inside cockpit, Plane crash filmed from inside cockpit A June plane crash that injured four people in Idaho was captured on film from inside the cockpit . The video went viral after it was posted online last week YouTuber outdoors2stay recorded a small plane crashing into a field of trees from the point of view of the cockpit. His entire video, which is roughly seven minutes long, starts with the plane taking off and it lasts until the passenger was able to find his camera in the wreckage and record the injuries.

This morning, CBS reported that the man who filmed the incident is Tol Gropp. Gropp’s father was the pilot and his two friends rode in the back seat. All survived but Gropp’s father is recovering from a broken jaw and cheekbone.

The caption on Gropp’s video reads:

Due to warming temperatures there was an increase in density altitude and we had a hard time getting adequate lift. After taking off we hit an air pocket that made us rapidly loose altitude, pushing us down into the trees…Thank you to all the many individuals who eventually came to our aid and took the time and effort to help in any way they could. We appreciate you more than you know.You're in a light plane and your filming the scenery when it all goes horribly - disastrously - wrong.

The plane loses altitude, clips some trees and crashes.

This is just what happened to a group of hikers in Idaho last month.

But when their single-engine aircraft went down they kept their cameras rolling.

The result is a dramatic sequence that shows the view of the crash from inside the planeIncredibly, everyone onboard escaped with relatively minor injuries. The pilot was worst off, needing treatment for cuts.

The video was posted on YouTube earlier this week.

One of the air crash survivors wrote: "After flying up into the mountains for a hike in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness we were planning on flying to a small mountain town for dinner.Due to warming temperatures we had a hard time gaining altitude. After taking off we hit an air pocket that made us rapidly lose altitude, pushing us down into the trees.

"The cameras were left on for a couple of hours during the aftermath. Thank you to all the many individuals who eventually came to our aid and took the time and effort to help in any way they could."
