Nasty Airline Crash In Taiwan

There is actually a better video taken from the dashcam of the white car that can be seen up ahead in this video, where you can see the taxi being hit by the wing of the plane.  Unfortunately, the version on Youtube is not as clear as the version on The Weather Network.

The wing missed the driver by mere inches, and you can see him out on the street opening the rear hatch of the taxi in the first video.

23 fatalities are confirmed so far. This is the second crash the budget carrier has had in seven months.

Death tolll is now up to 40.  :'(

Word is that it was the *right* engine that experienced the flameout, but then the left engine shut down as well.  Whether the crew accidentally shut it down or something else happened is not yet known.
