VIDEO: TransAsia Airways Plane Crashing Into Freeway In Taiwan

21st Century Wire says…

Unbelievable dashcam video from Taipei showing a TransAsia Airways Flight GE235 twin prop aircraft banking sharply before clipping the highway barrier of ‘National Freeway No. 1’ and then hitting a taxi, before crashing into the adjacent KeelungRriver.

It’s said that at least 26 people were killed, and still 12 unaccounted for – on the flight out of 58 people in total on board when the plane turned onto its side shortly after takeoff, clipped a bridge and crashed into a river in the island’s capital of Taipei.
