Video: Fedex crash proves large aircraft aren’t meant to bounce

Footage of a Fedex cargo plane crashing at Narita Airport in Tokyo shows the plane bouncing several times before flipping over and bursting into flames.

The MD-11 aircraft, Flight 80 from Guangzhou, China, was apparently whipped back up by strong winds while attempting to land at around 6:50 a.m. Monday local time, according to Japanese police. Winds in the area were reported to be blowing at 72kms/ hour (45 miles/ hr) at the time of the crash.

Both the pilot, and co-pilot are believed to have been killed on impact.
