A chilling video

A video camera in the control tower at Congonhas airport captures the last few seconds of the ill-fated TAM A320 that overshot the runway last week and exploded, killing all on board (and a few on the ground). Notice as the plane moves out of the field of the camera, a flash on the right side (speculation is focusing on a malfunction with the right thrust-reverser). A few seconds later there is an explosion off-screen, and an orange glow that fills the left hand side. RIP. Reuters QuickCut: Brazil crash | Video | Reuters.com [Hat tip Aviatrix]
