RE: NW A319/ DC-9 Ground Collision Video

It's a cool video, but for sure the media sped it up. Look at the 2nd shot (after the frame-by-frame), after the planes collide you'll see a tug (or some other airport vehicle) just take-off like it was a dragster.

Stupid media, why can't they just report the news?
