  • FedEx Narita Airport Crash: Video
    Posted by Christopher Fotos 12:02 PM on Mar 23, 2009

    An airport camera caught the crash of the FedEx MD-11 that crashed on landing at Tokyo Narita, killing two pilots. Below the video is a link to an English-language video report from NHK.

    NHK report here (could not find a version that our system could embed). A story attached to the video says:

    The transport ministry said ground controllers had received a report of sudden changes in wind direction and velocity, called wind shear, 4 minutes before the crash. They had relayed the information to the FedEx pilot.
