Man twitters Denver plane crash


Though I am pretty sure this was against FAA regulations, and he probably pissed a flight attendant or two off. But my rule is, when the plane is crashing, all rules go out the window.

Mike Wilson, a passenger on Continental Flight 1404, posted accounts of his escape from a burning Boeing 737 moments after it happened. Read portions of his twitter log here.

According to the Denver Post, the plane veered off the runway during take off from the Denver International Airport, barreled into a ravine and caught fire. Reports state that the left engine fell off (Andy said that's not a good thing) and the landing gear failed.

Thirty-eight of the 112 people aboard the Houston-bound flight were injured; two are in critical condition.

And though the runway was covered in snow, officials have not yet determined the cause of the crash.

Of course, the Post's account of the crash was up hours after @2drinksbehind blasted the crash to his followers and posted this breaking news photo on TwitPic.

Twitter is not played out yall.
