Amazing photos of a jet crash in Canada. The still photos reveal all.
Look at the nozzles on the jet’s engines. The port (left) nozzle is wide open indicating that he was really thrusting on that. The starboard nozzle is in the closed position meaning it flamed-out and wasn’t pushing any air through. Also when the plane crashes flames shoot out the port engine which was running but not the starboard engine which was off.
Then the video makes sense. The pilot was doing a low speed/altitude pass and lost the starboard engine. He tried to compensate but it wasn’t enough at that speed (you can hear the port engine whine in the video) and the plane banks starboard since the port engine is the only one running.
Here’s the video. http://tinyurl.com/38zfjmt
