Selfies the Leading Cause of Plane Crash in Colorado
In May of last year, a Cessna 150 crashed killing both on board and it now looks like taking selfies is the leading cause of the plane going down. The plane dropped some 1,900 feet per minute before the pilot lost control and crashed into a field outside of Watkins, Colo.
The National Transportation Safety Board says the pilot would have had to rely mainly on instruments to fly as there were only about seven miles of visibility. So, let's pull out our phones and take a few selfies to mark the occasion.
GoPro was found near the crash with footage of the two taking selfies from takeoff to just before the crash. The lesson here is that is a pilot can lose control of a plane with no other traffic around what would happen on a busy road with two ton vehicles?
