This past Saturday a 1940′s World War II era plane crashed killing 6 people including the pilot, at a Reno air show.  The crash appears to be a result of the plane’s tail losing a small piece from its rudder, or at least that’s the running theory.

Shortly after the incident occurred video footage popped up depicting the accident from a number of angles, albeit from far away. Now new footage has emerged showing the plane just a few hundred feet over head before it took its perilous nose dive.

To be candid, the reason we’re posting this is because the footage is not only awe inspiring, but is an excellent depiction of how technology has transformed news reporting.  Within minutes of something transpiring, video footage and images now appear on the net.  Twitter, Facebook and other social oriented sites, including YouTube (case in point), have played a pivotal role in this paradigm shift.

Or deepest condolences go out to the families of those that lost their loved ones.
