Brazil Plane Crash Captured On CCTV

A security camera has captured the moment a plane crashed on landing close to a major road in Sao Paolo.

The corporate jet overshot its designated runway at Congonhas Airport, slid down an embankment, bounced on a retaining wall and crashed in a cloud of smoke.

Media reports in Brazil claimed the pilot of the Cessna 525B Citation aircraft suffered serious injuries, but two passengers were largely unhurt.

The plane apparently failed to brake after touching down - and then smashed to the ground with its twin engines still operating.

All three people on board were able to escape the wreckage as fire crews doused the aircraft.
