That van is one lucky van. The plane is obviously stalled and sinking fast. Pilot error, or power failure. Fifteen survivors, 23 dead, 20 missing, as of the latest that I read….

Port engine looked stopped to me port wing stalled, starboard still giving lift. :-( Damned impressed that anyone got out to be honest, not to mention that the crew managed to stick it in a river rather than one of those tower blocks.

And it's already a conspiracy theory, the internet "experts" have determined that the wing should have disintegrated the taxi that got hit, rather than "scrape" it, others claim the plane should have levered right when the wing hit the bridge and others think the wing should have cut the bridge in half …

But it's obvious they planted fake footage to cover something up !

Amazed anyone made it out.

The river isn't that deep at that point (remembering
from over 50 years ago).

Unless of course it's been dredged….

Like oddball said amazing that anyone made it out alive, you think the impact would've killed almost everybody on board.

And a story that possibly there may have been a problem with one of the engines and the wrong engine was shut down,the still operational one as opposed to the one with the mechanical issues.
