I believe there are three people that I can point out that aren't going to sleep very good tonight, possibly due to a few compressed vertebrae.


A small private jet overshot the runway, took a dramatic bounce on the turf and then flopped onto the roadside embankment.
Investigators were probing claims that the Cessna 525B Citation plane failed to brake upon landing and hit the ground with its engines running.


Source - Thanks Zaphod

I know what these poor folks experienced inside the aircraft is 100 times worse than what we can 'feel' watching it on video.



All three walked away, (well, ran because of the pending fire), then after reaching safety only would one realize, "mmm..is my leg supposed to bend that way?"

Omg...
that was nuts... I have to admit, after that flight, I would be having a few words with that pilot... I don't think it would be very nice either... I am glad to see that they got out of the aircraft alright.. and crash rescue was quick on the scene..

It's a Citation. They overshot the runway on landing, bounced when they hit the grass, and you saw the end result.

They're lucky that they landed on that concrete wall.

If the plane had bounced just a little more higher/farther, there most likely would have been several casualties.
