Video Released In Fatal Plane Crash

The video footage of a fatal August plane crash has been released.

A security camera videotaped a Cirrus SR-22 crashing in a north Phoenix parking lot Aug. 4.

The pilot radioed Phoenix Deer Valley Airport shortly after takeoff, saying he needed to return to "close the door," according to the National Transportation Safety Board report. He received clearance to land, and said he didn't need any help. That was the last the tower heard from him.

A witness driving near the airport said he saw the plane in apparent trouble, and soon after saw a plume of smoke.

The plane crashed into the parking lot of a pest control company, killing the pilot, who was the only person onboard.

The video shows the plane crashing nose first into the parking lot of a pest control company.

The front of the plane snaps off, pieces scatter, and then the wreckage explodes into a massive fireball filling the security camera screen.

The crash burned part of the company's building, but fortunately nobody else was hurt.

The NTSB is still investigating.
