Plane Crash From Inside The Cockpit

Four people have had a miraculous escape after the small plane they were in crashed into trees - and the whole thing was filmed from inside the aircraft. Those on board were heading up into the Idaho mountains for a morning hike at the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness, But as the Sun rose higher, the warming temperature caused the air density to decrease, meaning the aircraft struggled to get sufficient lift. It hit an air pocket and plunged quickly to the ground, crashing through the trees.

Amazingly, all four men on board - the pilot, co-pilot and two passengers - survived, with one report suggesting the pilot had broken ribs and a collapsed lung. The people involved can be seen wandering around and sitting on the ground looking shocked in the aftermath.
