Footage Shows How Close Plane Was To Diving Into The Black Sea

On the night of January 13, Saturday, a Pegasus Airlines Boeing 737-800 jet skidded off a runway during its landing and almost plunged into the Black Sea in Trabzon, Turkey. None of the plane’s 168 passengers, including the pilots and crew, were injured in the crash. This harrowing footage of the aftermath shows how close the plane was to coming to a halt in the icy waters, just off the edge of the runway. The plane was arriving from Turkey’s capital city Ankara. According to the pilots of the plane, they lost control of their aircraft after a sudden and unexplained surge of power to their right-hand-side engine. The pilot, co-pilot and crew have now made statements to Trabzon prosecutors and both pilots passed breathalyzer tests, Turkey’s Dogan news agency said. One of the passengers told that they had to wait inside the aircraft for 20 minutes for help and were later told to leave the plane through its back exit. According to local media, the plane was struggling to come to a halt on the wet runway and couldn’t slow down enough to avoid skidding. Early analysis of the incident says that the jet was prevented from diving into the sea by its landing gear getting stuck in the muddy hillside. Media also reports that the airport in Trabzon is still closed, pending investigation, as emergency crews are still working on the scene.

Cab Won't Stop For Pedestrians, Gets A Dose Of Instant Karma

Don’t you just love dash cam videos? They are the gift from the gods of technology, letting us capture things we could never explain to people who weren’t with us in the car at the time of happening! Ever since they came out, the ddash cam’s initial purpose is to insure you in case of traffic accidents or when some unlucky person decides to blame you for running them over. People have had their minds taken off the guilt of ruining someone's life or idea of a life with the footage their camera captured. The majority of videos we get captured by these awesome devices let us see what it looks like when someone gets served instant justice, cold and hard! Whether it is a rowdy pedestrian or a careless driver, we get to see that there is justice in the world and it will catch up on you, sooner or later. One driver in Poland managed to capture what happens to Polish drivers when they fail to let pedestrians pass while on the crosswalk. A taxi driver zoomed right past a man and a woman on opposite sides of the street who were trying to cross it. Fast forwards a few minutes and we get to see a police catching up to the taxi, flashing lights on. When the police approaches your car with the roof lights flashing, you know that you did something really, really bad!

Driver maintains control as truck's tire blows out on highway29s

Driver maintains control as truck's tire blows out on highway

Highway 401 in Ontario, also known as the Trans Canada Highway is one of the busiest highways in the world. It is used by almost as many 18 wheel transport trucks as cars. When these big rigs are rolling down the highway at speeds of 60-70mph, the last thing you want to see is a tire blowing out or a wheel coming off. The tire on the far right, second from the back exploded with a sound that was like a gunshot. It could be heard several cars back and the percussion could actually be felt. The dust and dirt on the road around the truck was sent into the air like a plume of smoke. Cars following behind the semi braked in anticipation of what could have been a loss of control for the truck. Fortunately, the truck driver could hear or feel what happened and he braked in a controlled manner and pulled off the highway onto the shoulder. Almost anyone who has driven on major highways has seen the large strips of rubber on the road as pieces are left like shrapnel after a blowout. These events must be fairly common, judging by the number of pieces of shredded tire that can be found on many roads, but it is not very often that a driver will actually witness it happening. Luckily, this driver had a dash cam running so that it could be captured on video. It is also clear that the drivers of the vehicles around the truck were wise to brake and get ready in case the transport truck driver experienced any problems. As the vehicle with the camera passed by, the truck with the blown tire was making his way carefully onto the right shoulder of the road. This incident illustrates the importance of maintaining a safe following distance and the benefit of not driving right beside a large truck for any length of time. A car immediately adjacent to the tire when it exploded could have had serious trouble and likely damage.

Radio controlled jet fighters reach incredible speeds3m08s

Radio controlled jet fighters reach incredible speeds

These turbine, real kerosene burning jet powered radio controlled jets classify as a hobby. However, they're not for the faint of heart or shallow pocketed hobbyist! Costing in the area of $10,000, they are not something you want to have a mishap with, but it happens.... There are many different types of jet models, from this double boom type tail, to full on fighter types. Kevin, one of these pilots, has also built and flown CT-114 Tudor models, which are replicas of the full scale aircraft the Canadian Snowbirds demonstration team fly in their routines. These aircraft sound just like the real fighters, sending chills down your spine when you are on the runway edge experiencing a low flyby nearing 200 MPH!

Driver Cuts Off Cop Twice, Immediately Gets Pulled Over40s

Driver Cuts Off Cop Twice, Immediately Gets Pulled Over

Traffic rules are for everybody and they are there for a reason. Safety in traffic is highly important and the rules make sure that both you and everyone around you is protected in case of something happening that might endanger your right to be safe. However, there are drivers out there, using the same roads that you do, but do not comply to those rules that are supposed to keep us alive. That is where law enforcement steps in. A driver pulls out of the gas station in front of an unmarked police vehicle, cutting it off. The driver then proceeds into the left turn lane and then immediately merges right, cutting of the cop AGAIN! What happens next is what is known as instant karma. At the 00:26 mark, you can see the black SUV turning their police emergency lights on. This is the exact reason why there are unmarked police vehicles roaming the streets, just waiting for someone to make a careless move. Usually, when punks like this one see a police cruiser, they pretend to be abide by the law until they lose sight of the cruiser. Then it is back to their careless behavior, and that is when things get nasty! Not only did this driver behave recklessly in busy traffic, but he also forgot to use his turning signals, and right in front of the police officers! We hope he learned his lesson.

Check Out How Tesla's Model 3 Autopilot Works In Heavy Traffic

Rumble user ‘ricardoapparicio0’ decided to test out the autopilot feature on Tesla’s Model 3 and what better way to demonstrate the machine’s nerves of steel, then by sending it where all season drivers hate to go - in stop-and-go traffic! They drove for 45 minutes on 5S through Camp Pendleton in Southern California and the car performed like a champ, starting and stopping at the right time, always putting its passengers’ safety first! Within a week of unveiling the Model 3 in 2016, Tesla said, they had taken 325,000 reservations for the four-door sedan, more than triple the number of Model S sedans sold by the end of 2015. These reservations represent potential sales of over US$14 billion. By August 2017, there were 455,000 net reservations, and an average of 1,800 reservations were being added per day. Tesla's Model 3 is designed to achieve a "5-Star Safety Rating" and is expected to have a drag coefficient of 0.23. This will be lower than the Tesla Model S drag coefficient of Cd=0.24, which in 2014 was the lowest among current production cars. To put things further into perspective, the average modern automobile achieves a drag coefficient of between 0.30 and 0.35. All in all, this is a very smooth ride!

Steam Train Racing Across Picturesque Autumn Surroundings3m09s

Steam Train Racing Across Picturesque Autumn Surroundings

The development of the steam locomotive in the early 19th century transformed the world, carrying people and goods at unprecedented speeds around the globe. Imagine you could create your ultimate fantasy train set. It would be a network of quaint branch lines passing through some remote, timeless and beautiful landscape. The little wayside stations would be immaculate and the regular train service would run on time every day. The engines would be steam-powered and polished. The station masters and porters would wear smart uniforms and greet passengers with a cheery wave. Most importantly, the line would serve real people going about their daily business, not serve as a museum piece for trainspotters. Could such an idyllic railway exist in 2017? Steam trains attract a different kind of trainspotter. There’s something about the toot of the chime whistle, the telltale plumes of smoke and the celebrated design that attracts more than the anorak brigade. This brilliant video shows a German steam train chugging alongside a beautiful autumn backdrop and we could watch this all day! In a valley of low, rugged hills, there stands the abandoned railway track. Around the corner there's an approaching cacophony of rattles and blasts of steam. Noises from another era can be heard around the valley. And then it appears, clattering and shuddering, the billowing puffs of nostalgia. It’s a mesmerising, unforgettable sight. Soon the air becomes thick and colored with dark grey smoke, streaked with coal dust and grease. One of the few surviving steam trains in Germany appears on the horizon and slowly makes its way to its final destination. Watching as the train passes through the picturesque surrounding our hearts are already on the Hogwarts Express train!

New Mexico's Singing Highway Plays 'America The Beautiful'1m40s

New Mexico's Singing Highway Plays 'America The Beautiful'

Two years ago, the New Mexico Department of Transportation decided to spice up a particularly desolate stretch of Route 66 between Albuquerque and Tijeras by adding grooves in the road that will play music when you drive over them. Just outside of Tijeras, New Mexico is one of only two "singing roads" in the United States. Installed and paid for by National Geographic as part of their 'Crowd Control' series, it plays 'America the Beautiful' when you do the speed limit. New Mexico’s “Singing Road" was featured on National Geographic Nat-Geo cable channel, as part of the network’s show “Crowd Control". Nat-Geo actually paid for the permanent rumble strips on Route 66 between Albuquerque and Tijeras which plays “America the Beautiful" when you drive over them at the 45 mile per hour speed limit. The show uses fun experiments to change social behavior. The goal of the rhythmic road, at 364 Highway 66 East near Tijears, is to help drivers stay focused, as part of a social experiment to change social behavior. The effect was achieved by placing metal plates in the pavement, which were ther covered by asphalt and rumble strips. You must drive the speed limit in order to hear the road “sing"; go to slow or too fast and it won’t work.

Horrible Driver Hits Neighbor's Car, Casually Drives Off33s

Horrible Driver Hits Neighbor's Car, Casually Drives Off

Here's how NOT to improve friendly neighborly relations! Check it out as the car across the street backs up right into a pickup truck, pauses for a moment, and then casually drives off. Good thing this CCTV camera was rolling! People commenting on the original video have had a blast! Naturally, some confirm that the neighbor’s actions are indeed a “hit-and-run" and the she (assuming it is a woman, the footage isn’t clear on the subject) should be held accountable. Others say that the owner of the pickup truck was basically asking to be backed into, parking directly across from another driveway. Whether the driver of the dark purple Nissan Qashqai did a bigger number on his own SUV, than on the ancient and probably uninsured pickup truck is yet to be seen. Probably never. But we can take a wild guess and say that the paint from the Nissan gave the truck’s rear a gentle blush and is probably missing a few lines of color. In a somewhat similar event, an older woman had to take drastic measures when she couldn’t back off her own driveway in Luton, UK, so she called the strongest man she knew - her nephew The Turkish Hulk. Instead of causing a scene, the strongman lifts and moves the neighbor’s car away. It would seem that these petty neighbors are all over the planet!

Car Attempts To Tow Van And It Doesn't Go Exactly As Planned2m49s

Car Attempts To Tow Van And It Doesn't Go Exactly As Planned

Here's one good reason why you should simply call a professional tow truck! Filmed from a private apartment in the town of Solin in Croatia, a family witnessed what can only be described as two completely ignorant groups of people, who have probably passed their driving test on a hunch and never even took a good look at the images on the test, attempting to tow a van on a busy boulevard! You might think that there is nothing wrong with it, but here is the catch - when you are in need of a tow, first of all, you call a tow company, because that is what they do! Second of all, if you are feeling stingy about it and you want to tow the car with your own vehicle, you never, ever tie the tow line on the back bumper of the car that needs to be towed! Tow companies do it like that because they use a rigid connection between the truck and the car, having complete control of the towed vehicle. With a rope, the car in the back needs to steer on the road just as much as the vehicle that is towing it in the front! Well, that didn't go as planned!

Airplane Suffers Front Wheel Malfunction, Crash Lands On Propellers52s

Airplane Suffers Front Wheel Malfunction, Crash Lands On Propellers

Even the most seasoned of airplane passengers have that tiny spark of fear in the back of their heads every time they go flying. It is normal to feel fear out of something that doesn’t come naturally to human, flying being one of them. We are accustomed to have both our feet safely on the ground. Despite people’s fears of flying, air travel is statistically the safest mode of transportation in the world. The only thing that makes flying dangerous isn’t the takeoff or the flying itself - it is the landing procedure. The increasing proximity of the ground towards the aircraft, as well as the wild crosswinds that are known to cause trouble on some airports, are the main culprits in most crash landings. Then, there are the technical difficulties that can happen in the blink of an eye and the only thing standing between the passengers on the aircraft and certain death in the pilot’s experience and calm demeanor while trying to land the flying can! When this plane's front wheel dangerously malfunctions, the pilot is forced to perform an emergency landing. At first, the plane’s propellers stop working just above the ground, but the pilot restarts the engine and they start turning. But just as they try to lower the front of the plane on the strip, the front landing wheel collapses, forcing the plane to come to a halt using the propellers. Luckily it's a small plane and everyone was OK!

Ferrari 458 Convertible Supercar Has A Seriously Cool Feature55s

Ferrari 458 Convertible Supercar Has A Seriously Cool Feature

The Ferrari 458 is a classic supercar that turns heads wherever it goes. Perhaps it's the signature Ferrari red paint, or maybe it's the sleek lines or even the deep, throaty growl of the nearly 600hp engine. The car is built to accelerate like a rocket and corner like it's on rails. But there is another feature of this car that makes it a lot of fun. With the push of a button, the security latches on the roof release and mechanized arms fold the roof back and into a concealed compartment behind the driver. A panel cover lifts off and back, allowing the roof to neatly stow away inside the compartment before the hatch lowers back into place to restore the sharp lines of this beautiful car. It's difficult to tell whether the car's exotic look, responsive handling, or maybe the retractable roof are what is the most fun about a car like this. Either way, the driver will not be able to resist playing with this roof, even a little bit! If you ask people which is their favorite Ferrari supercar, everyone will give you a different answer, although it seems that the hybrid LaFerrari is leading by popular vote. LaFerrari literally means "TheFerrari" in Italian language and in some other Romance languages, in the sense that it is the "definitive" Ferrari.

This Is How Belgians Teach Youngsters About The Dangers Of Texting While Driving

Each year thousands of people die behind the wheel due to texting, and most of the victims are younger than 25. It’s a frightening fact that makes you question yourself how you can convince young people not to text while driving. The answer is to prove to them it is a very bad idea: make them text while driving (while being supervised, of course)! It’s how Belgians decided to show the young people in their country that texting while driving or replying to your Facebook status can harm you and others around you, and in the worst case, be fatal. In this video you can see how Belgian learner drivers reacted when they were told they had to pass the mobile phone test in order to get their driver's license. As every potential driver gets into the car, he is told that they have just received a new ministerial circular that introduces new road safety measures. These safety measures meant the young drivers must prove they are able to use their mobile phones while driving and at the same time avoid obstacles in the road. "I didn’t invent this. Look here" the driving instructor convinces the learner drivers as they enter the vehicle. One of them had pretty funny reaction and told him: "Plenty of people will crash, I’m telling you." As the drivers start to drive, the instructor tells them what to write in the SMS. He even jokes with them that he will check if their spelling is correct. What is important in this Belgian road safety campaign are the learners reactions of them not being able to drive at all while texting a message, saying that this is dangerous. Some of them even said that if this becomes law, they will stop driving. One thing is for sure, you can’t do both things at the same time. At least that’s something we all agree with.

Truck Crashes And Destroys Highway Sign12s

Truck Crashes And Destroys Highway Sign

A truck, that for some reason has its bed standing upright, completely destroys a massive highway sign in Saudi Arabia. What was the driver thinking?! The driver was probably oblivious that his truck was in an upright position, which is something that you really can't miss! We hope that the dump truck driver made it out okay, but the stress and panic he caused to the other drivers is something he should be worried about. Human carelessness can be great, but when you are a driver you are not only responsible for you and the passengers in your vehicle, but also for every other participant in the traffic. Paying attention on the road is of the utmost importance and it should never be taken for granted. Otherwise, the outcome could be catastrophic. Here we can see the highway sign being completely obliterated as the driver goes straight through it, disregarding the warning honks of the nearby cars. This is something that if somebody told you about, you wouldn't believe it. But here it is, on video, for everyone to see what happens when you let your mind wander while on the road. Always, always be a responsible driver! People's lives are at stake!

Watch What Happens With This Speeding Corvette At An Intersection

So, we all know that while in traffic we can meet all kinds of drivers and experience all sorts of situations, but this one is just mind blowing. First off, lets give this guy a shout out for going waaay over the speed limit and endangering every ones life including his. Also, the luck he had while speeding through that intersection with an absurd speed and not hitting nor getting hit by someone. On the other hand, the guy behind the wheel of the car that is filming this whole scenario is just waiting on the worst to happen while commentating on the situation. This Corvette driver passes all the cars with a ridiculous speed while going through an intersection and over a bump and if you can imagine is a couple of seconds even airborne. This crazy drive manages to keep the car in control and not swerving off as he even steps further down on the gas and disappears into traffic. One thing is for sure, this is probably the luckiest guy this week by getting away with such stupid speed in such a traffic jam. A Corvette ZR1 speeds by in this dash cam footage and literally jumps an intersection, nearly crashing into other cars. So stupid!
