An Airbus A320 operated by Brazilian carrier TAM crashed on landing in Sao Paulo, killing nearly 200 people, including all 176 passengers and some people on the ground as the aircraft skidded off the runway onto a busy road.
When the aircraft slid onto the road it slammed into a building and a gas station for cars causing an explosion.
Flightglobal's own safety expert, David Learmount, gives his take on what happened.

The film shows the moment the TAM A320 skidded of Runway L35 at Congonhas Airport, and moments later the flash of an explosion can been seen to light up the night's sky.
