VIDEO: Passenger films horrifying footage of deadly plane crash

A passenger has posted the horrifying footage of a deadly plane crash.

On July 10, the Convair-340 charter plane crashed outside Pretoria, South Africa, soon after take-off from the airport, killing a flight engineer and a person on the ground, while leaving two pilots critically injured.

The charter plane, constructed 64 years ago, crashed near the South African capital last week, ahead of a long-haul flight to The Netherlands.

The accident was captured on a mobile phone by a passenger seated behind the left wing.

“This is getting very bad,” a man is heard saying as the left engine bursts into flames.

“They’ve got to cut the engine so we can reach the runway,” he adds.

When the plane hits the ground, the video goes black for half a minute; after that, the smoke-filled cabin is seen with passengers moaning in pain in the background.

“Everybody out! Everybody out! Everybody out!” someone shouts.

The video goes black again at the end, while some people are apparently heard moving through or clearing the debris.

Built in 1954, the vintage aircraft was due to be put on display at an air museum in The Netherlands within the next few days.
