This is a video of the deHavilland beaver plane crash at Lake Hood in Anchorage AK, on June 7, 2009. My father and I were videotaping planes at Lake Hood taking off and landing when the wind kicked up and sent the Beaver taking off right at us.

The wing was less than 5 feet over our heads, and the radial engine was less than 8 feet to my left. No exaggeration!! The Slow motion at the end gives a little better look at how close it was. Everyone onboard was in pristine condition, 2 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs.

Update here.

Thanks to qb

    Thanks, Scott. Since the Weekly World News has gone, I rely on The Onion for all my news.

  4. I’m glad people enjoyed the bus article.

    Nimby, the onion is better than many real news organizations. Sometimes they report real news before it even happens.

  5. That’s an awesome information which i was looking for since three days. Also i’ve a question that why he didn’t stick with the waterway on his right? Does that make any sense?
