Aircraft crash video

What happens in this video ?

On July 19, 1989, this United airline DC-10 crashed at Sioux City airport (Iowa, USA).
The cause of the accident is that the fan disk of its tail-mounted engine, weakened by fatigue cracks, fragmented catastrophically, and the engine assembly failed to contain the debris which severed all three of the airplane's hydraulic systems. It had left all control surfaces on the airplane immovable. The only way to control the plane was by adjusting the thrust on the two remaining wing-mounted engines.
During the emergency landing, the right wing dropped and the nose pitched forward. The tip of the right wing contacted the runway first and the aircraft skidded to the right, ignited and somersaulted. 184 passengers survived, 112 passengers died.

It was Children's Day at United Airlines when this crash happened and those children acounted for the majority of the fatalities. The airline was later sued for negligence in not providing proper safety equipment for the children on board. The infants were simply placed on the floor as the aircraft came down. In a telivision interview years after the crash, one stewardess lamented that by telling their parents to do that, she was condemning the children to certain death.

My father knew the captain of that flight. My father was captain for TWA for 37 years and said that captain(and co-pilot) did a miraculous job just getting it to the runway.

that fan disc blew because there was a flaw the size of a grain of sand that finally cracked.That engine was not supposed to be used as x-rays showed the flaw but somehow it was used instead of being returned.

if you read the description of the movie, it is mistaken.... the aircraft did not somersault, but simply rolled.
