Dec 11, 2013. Hawaiian Plane Ditching Caught filmed with GoPro from inside the plane. The plane, a 2002 Cessna Grand Caravan, had engines problems and Ferdinand Puentes, one of the passengers, filmed everything with his GoPro Camera! This happened near Molokai (Hawaii), the incredible thing is the quite and that there was no panic. The pilot was trying to keep everybody together but it was impossible cause of the waves.
News say the engine was working 100%. It seems that the crash was due to the pilot not having his hand on the throttle lever for takeoff and the pilot's inability to keep proper climb attitude. :-| No injuries.
Terrifying Skydivers Planes Mid-Air Collision Crash, watch the story. No injuries.
The aircraft drops altitude rapidly and the pilot pulls back to soon, stalling the aircraft and then falling to the ground. Its always easier said than done but had he eased into the flare a little more gently he could have milked out a nice soft landing. Pilot and passenger suffered minor injuries.
As the pilot of this Cessna attempts to takeoff in a cornfield he overcorrects in gusty winds causing the wing tip to contact the ground, spiraling the plane into the field. Despite the ensuing fire that consumed the cabin, the pilot was not injured. The pilot had initially landed in the field due to strong winds, heavy rain and low fuel.

Feb 6, 2013 Utah. Incredible Crash Landing Filmed by Passenger Phone. The carburator had iced and after gliding over some field the pilot found an ideal place to land. The pilot is well experienced in field landings but unfortunately the soft snow caused the landing gear to sever from the plane, then flipping the plane front to back and smashing the tail before it came to a rest upside down. No one was hurt in the accident only minor cuts.
