CI 642 crashed at Hong Kong international airport on August 22nd 1999 during a Typhoon. The MD-11 in the colours of Mandarin Airlines was landing on RWY 25L when its right wing hit the runway causing it to explode and flip over.

Whats the problem?
We are always given links to tiny little papers and news channels in the USA that you need to subsribe to. Now its a HONG KONG paper its a problem!. For the record the SCMP has already been voted the worlds best online newspaper.
Ever thought that another user will be able to READ my post view the video and save it for you guys to see??
OK, lets delete my post and you can all find the bloody video on your own.
Why do I bother.
P.S. Tehan, Whats your point regarding my details, do you have a problem?

Thanks for bringing this to our attention! I'm glad you posted this thread, let the children above complain to their mommies. At least now I know there is a video available, and if somebody is able to provide us with it, that's great! I think, give it time and it will be available for us to see.
Thanks again N754pr!

Surely you of all people should not be advocating sharing passwords! You should know that if N754PR shares, then he will have his subscription cancelled immediately.
Just think of it as him letting you know this video exists and it is available if you want to pay for it.

Thank you very much N754pr, it's nice that you gave us the heads up for this video. As a result, I now have the video, unfortunatly due to copyright reasons I cannot post it and I'm not going to risk uploading it. I'm sure it will pop up somewhere for free.
The video is horrific, an MD11 on approach in the typhoon, and then you see the right wing dipping and an explosion. It's amazing how there was only 3 fatalities in that crash.
Again, thank you N754pr.
