No matter what, you gotta give the pilot an A for effort…
Did it lose an engine? Maybe the right engine went out, the loss of power caused a stall and then the rolling to the right because of the left engine still running etc. . .
look at the exhaust nozzles, they are in different positions…
First thing I noticed when I saw the pics. . .

At 2:05 into the youtube video, it sounds like the guy says the plane just recently had a $2.9 BILLION upgrade. He MUST be saying Million, but I’d swear he’s saying Billion…
Hell, with a $2.9 billion upgrade, the plane should fix itself!
