Cargo plane breaks in half during emergency landing; watch viral video

In case you missed this shocking video, you just have to watch it now.

A cargo airliner broke into two half during an emergency landing in Costa Rica earlier last month.

The accident had prompted the temporary closure of the international airport in San Jose.

The footage showed smoke coming out from the bright yellow aircraft of German logistics company DHL as it ground to a stop, having slid off the runway when it spun and broke around the rear wheels.

Two crew members onboard were “in a good condition,” said the chief of Costa Rica’s firefighters, Hector Chaves.

They were taken to hospital as a precautionary measure “for a medical check-up,” as per Guido Vasquez, a Red Cross worker.

The pilot of the aircraft was taken aback but both crew members were conscious and “remember everything vividly,” added Vasquez.
