Terrifying new video has emerged of the moment a plane’s landing gear collapsed on touchdown – filmed from inside the cabin by a passenger.
The nose gear of Southwest Airlines Flight 345, arriving from Tennessee and landing at New York's LaGuardia Airport, collapsed right after the plane touched down on the runway last Monday.
Passenger Bryan Foster was filming as the plane landed and the camera was knocked out of his hand on impact.
In the ensuing darkness, the other passengers can be heard screaming in panic.
Six of the injured were taken to hospital with minor injuries.
Thomas Bosco, acting director of aviation for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, said there was no advance warning of any possible problem.
He said the nose gear collapsed when the plane landed, and "the aircraft skidded down the runway on its nose and then veered off and came to rest in the grass area".
Southwest said 150 people were on the flight.
The landing gear collapse came 16 days after Asiana Flight 214 crash-landed at San Francisco's airport, killing two Chinese teenagers and a third person.
Dozens of people were injured in that landing, which involved a Boeing 777 flying from South Korea.
