Hienoa että jäi videolle! Toivotaan että putoamispaikka saadaan laskettua(suomen puolelle tietysti), vaikka saattaakin olla että meni Norjan tai Venäjän puolelle.

Mitähän mahtoivat ajatella tuon lentokoneen lentäjät, muu henkilökunta ja matkustajat! Todella hieno! Onnittelut, tämä kuva oli televisiossa!
