India Plane Crash 2010 Video?

Today, May 22, 2010 an Air India Express Plane with 160 passengers and six crew members on board overshot the table-top runway at the Mangalore airport at 6.10 a.m. on Saturday and plunged over a cliff into a wooded valley where it burst into flames.
I saw the video of the plane burning, is there a video of the plane crashing?

President, Vice-President, Prime Minister and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi have expressed deep grief and sorrow at the Air India place crash and offered condolence to the bereaved families.

Is there a video of the plane crash in India?

Reportedly, the plane crashed at 6:30 AM India time on Saturday morning, which is 9PM EST Friday in the US. The plane was a Boeing 737 which overshot the runway after its arrival on a flight from Dubai at the airport near Mangalore, India. It burst into flames causing a great deal of smoke.

The video shows the plane is still on flames.

The reasons for the Indian Plane Crash are as yet unclear. Minister of State for Civil Aviation Praful Patel said an inquiry by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) had been ordered. The pilot did not report any problem or deficiency either during the course of the flight or on its final stretch. The weather was relatively normal with a visibility of six kilometres, calm winds and no rain. The runway was dry.

The plane's data and voice "black box" recorders have yet to be found.

All the passengers on the flight were Indian nationals, with many returning from jobs in the Gulf to visit their families, says the BBC's Sanjoy Majumder in Delhi. There were up to 20 children on board, our correspondent adds.

The survivors, some of them severely burned, are being treated in hospital in Mangalore, a southern port city.
