plane in the river (2)
The realization that the plane had deliberately followed the river led to an emotional celebration of the pilots' heroism. They had saved Taipei from a much worse disaster. 'He. . . did his best,' said gravelly-voiced Taipei mayor Ke Wen Zhe, the pause indicating a welling emotion. The third type of image is computer-generated video, which satisfies our fear fascination more fully. Now we can view the white prop plane banking this way and that up the Jilong River, and see its final plunge, after it disappeared from the dash cam video.
