Back in 2011, when I was sitting in my hostel room watching ‘Shutter’ for the first time, I felt my bed shake uncontrollably. That was followed by the ceiling fan swinging like a pendulum, a lot of manic screaming and a mad dash to reach somewhere without any buildings around. And on that day I understood what the fear of death felt like. So when I saw a plane come hurtling into a Toronto highway, I could totally imagine what was going through the minds of the people in the cars.
A bit of dashcam footage that has recently gone viral shows a plane scrapping one of its wings on the highway, nearly missing the car that was recording it. And it’s truly terrifying.

According to City News, the plane crashed near Buttonville airport. There were two people in it, a male instructor and a female student, at the time of the collision. Thankfully, both of them walked away from the accident alive with only minor injuries.
Netizens had their hearts in their mouths while seeing the video of the plane crash and were thankful that the people in it were alive.

Despite all the technological advancements, the concept of flying still seems fantastical. And, apart from Ethan Hunt and James Bond, this is the first time I’ve seen someone showing their middle-finger to Death. So, I hope the daredevils recover from the emotional trauma of this incident and start conquering the skies again.
