Umm where did he screw up? have anything past the link below that says it was his fault

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Plane ended up in the water. I'd say it was a screw up.

First time I seen this they said it was pilot error.

Kinda looks like he had the directional thrusters in hover mode and cut the throttle or something. Man, that plane sank in a hurry!

That was close. he landed almost right on top of it. If it wasnt for the strong wind i would have thought he was going back for the coffee mug he left in the cockpit.

Pissed me off. The plane went into a unrecoverable spin. Hit the eject key and had to restart the game.

Cool video. Looks to me like the possible engine failure.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
