Just showed video of it on CNN...porpoising on landing it looked like, then the left wing catches the ground and it flips...good luck guys...
Looks just like the landing in EWR back in 1997. That crew got out, let's hope this crew was able to get out safe.
CNN now reporting one person taken off, though they dont know the condition. They are also saying that this aircraft would have 'at least one pilot, and maybe a copilot'...so at least they are up to their usual standards of useful information.
What's with FedEx and approach/landing accidents?
