News Channel 11 has obtained surveillance video from the Elizabethton Municipal Airport that shows the first moments Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s plane touched the ground before it crashed in August.
The surveillance video only lasts for a few moments. You can see the attempted landing on the runway before the plane goes out of frame.
The video shows the right landing gear collapsing – the right wing touching the runway.
At the end of the video, you can also see an airport employee with a yellow vest run outside right after the plane passes.
