Did anyone else see that tire from the landing gear smack into the side of that car and almost knock it over?  Wow.  It was like a Michael Bay movie

Wow. Shame 4 people died.

If you can have that happen right in front of you and not piss yourself... well, I think it's safe you say you will never piss yourself.

Wow indeed, that happened today, every European news corp carried it.

Funny how Russian dash cam videos are available so fast, but US cities seem to lose their police dash cam videos when citizens manage to end up in the ER.

Plane wheels are heavy
Russian cars are really light

I have a strong urge to buy a dash cam even thought I've never had a reason to need one.

Looks like he went right over a row of seats, which just happened to be empty .....

This is why you keep emergency liquor with your spare tire kit.

I had to rewind it... that tire ricocheted off the underside of the overpass before it hit that car. Money shot

I bought a GoPro last month and have been using it as a dash cam. Haven't caught much worth while, though.

I've seen crazy stuff that I wish I would have had a cam for, and maybe I'll get lucky.

I would like a regular dashcam that has time and date burn-in, but one thing at a time I guess.

If only those drivers had been armed they could have protected themselves from that crash.

It is my understanding that insurance fraud is a national pasttime over there, so people have them to keep from being scammed.

I think you are using some archaic pronunciation of the word vodak...like when you say ask instead of ax.

Better check if it's legal in your state to have a dashcam

Dedicated dash cams are a lot cheaper than a Go Pro. Many high quality dash cams cost less than $50.

The GoPro is great for what it does, but it has an entirely different feature set than the dash cams. The good dash cams record a continuous loop of video files, they have a button to push if you want to save (write protect) a specific recording, like when an accident happens. The better ones are continuously plugged into a cig lighter and turn off when the car is turned off. Some even save recordings when the sense a high g load. A few have dual cameras, one for front, another for back, both recorded simultaneously.

Lots of reviews on Youtube for any who are interested.

My favorite is the one at night, where the car stops for a bunch of guys standing near the side of the road.  One of them walks backward, hops up onto the hood, and does a huge operatic flailing "death".

I would suggest everyone get a dash cam. I have one that showed that I entered an intersection well after the light turned green and was slammed into by a bicyclist. He ended up being airlifted to the hospital and has tried suing several times with different lawyers. The dashcam card that the police entered as evidence stops the suits as soon as the lawyer finds out.

Trust me, if he's Russian he never quit drinking vodka.

Please expand on that statement... Why wouldn't they? Affraid of filming cops?

drjekel_mrhyde: Better check if it's legal in your state to have a dashcam


In what states would it not be legal to have a dash cam? No one has an expectation of privacy when driving down the road.

It's true that some states have laws regarding audio recordings that are not revealed to all who are recorded. It's also true that a lot of these dash cams record both audio and video. Turning off the audio recording would make these completely legal in all states. Even so, the courts have regularly overturned the recording laws when the recording happened in public, in a place with no expectation of privacy. Generally, these charges are only brought when cops are recorded and the prosecution usually drops the charges before it ever gets to the courts.

The only real risk would be recording a cop who had pulled you over in a state with 2-party audio recording laws. The interesting bit is that most cops have absolutely no expectation of privacy, as they're already recording themselves. If the cops are busting you for recording them, it can only be because they've done something very wrong, something for which you'll be far better off having your own recording of.

The crash probably happened because he did quit, or at least slowed enough for his blood to ice up,

/thought I had experienced cold till I went there on a business trip a few years ago, they drink vodka to keep from freezing in place.

There are moments where I just want to kiss the ground and be thankful I'm in the states. After watching that video I am having one of those moments.

Seeing as the freaking wheel ended up on the highway, you can bet your ass you just witness some people parts hitting pavement too.

Where, Moscow? Winnipeg is worse and they don't have to drink all day.

There are colder places in Russia than anything over here, but I doubt you'd go on a business trip there unless you're a door to door caribou salesman....

Linkster: Driver lost his shiat and drove into the wreckage, if he would have stayed left, he would not have to buy new undies and the rashia


the rear side of his car was hit hard by flying parts, causing him to skid. If he hadn't steered into the skid, he would have spun around clockwise. I think he did a great job keeping control of the vehicle. Running over a few parts after the main wreck was merely incidental.

Try to never run out of altitude or airspeed. Leastwise not at the same time.

Thank you, I'm not sure how that applies to running off the end of the runway when landing, but I will try to keep it in mind.

I remember thinking, 'Hey did I leave the iron on?' Then I remember thinking, 'maybe I should get a puppy.'
No, I was thinking...Aaaahhhh!!!
