CHAMERS COUNTY – A Chilling video shows the final moments of the Amazon flight over Texas as it plunges into Trinity Bay killing all 3 men on board. The Atlas Air flight 3591 was captured hitting Trinity Bay by a police security camera. The Boeing 767 was carrying packages for Amazon and the US Postal Service when it crashed on February 23.
The video shows the B767 speeding overhead before nosediving to the ground. A huge plume of debris and water can then be seen on the horizon, when it crashed into Trinity Bay. Sheriff Brian Hawthorne said: ‘you can see it exploded, not by fire’.
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) had temporarily blocked the video’s release after police discovered it a day after the crash on February 23. The video is released 4 days after the NTSB recovered the Black Box of the B767.
