Video shows the accident site and drop off clearly, very lucky crew and passengers.

I guess the cost of brain surgery just went up.


The fuselage of this aircraft (as of Jan 14th 2013) is in a small storage yard about a mile west of Phoenix Sky Harbor airport. I was not allowed to look closely at the remains… I could see the full left side of the fuselage, left side engine is still in place, stab, wings and tail cone were detached and not seen. I was not allowed to look at the right side, could not see the #2 engine from my vantage point. Airframe still shows accident damage to the underside, and is still painted and carrying he ‘Jetsuite’ titles.

It is not visible from the street, and I was told the aircraft is stored per the instructions of the insurance company. I was not allowed to photograph it.
