A passenger of US Airways which “crashed” on Thursday , released some photos and videos from the scene immediately after evacuation.
Hannah Udren is seen on a grainy, ‘Blair Witch’-style clip fleeing from the Airbus A320 along the runway along with dozens of screaming passengers.
The plane, which was on its way from Philadelphia to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, made it into the air around 6.30pm but the takeoff was aborted. The front landing gear collapsed and the nose was badly damaged. Two of the 149 passengers suffered minor injuries.
“Plane just crashed. But we are ok,” one apparent passenger, Dennis Fee, posted on Facebook, followed by a photo of passengers fleeing a US Airways jet that appeared intact but whose nose was in contact with the ground.
The jet was carrying 149 passengers and five crew members, Hooks said.
