Wing Detached from Older Plane

Comments Off

With aging fleets of aircraft, we may see more disaters like this in the future.

The right wing detached from a vintage seaplane before it plunged into the sea off Miami Beach and killed 20 people, but it was unclear what caused the wing to break off.

Amateur video obtained by CNN showed the fuselage slam into the water, followed by the wing falling through the sky on fire and leaving a trail of black smoke.

Mark Rosenker, the acting chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board, said investigators had video from the U.S. Coast Guard and CNN, and will be getting video from a New York tourist who witnessed the crash.
