Delta MD-88 Skidding on Takeoff
The pilot in command increased power too early on a sharp turn, as someone
commented " He probably misjudged the spool up time " . If you look closely
you can see that the nosegear is pointed directly at you in the skid. Which
is almost sideways.

conditions. Aircraft is a Cessna T310Q. Runway 25 at KVGT in Las Vegas.
Approach is "over the numbers" (25 at McCarran KLAS), then left base onto
final for 25 at KVGT.
Ice shedding on airplane wing in flight, HD Cockpit view
Here you can see the activation of very effectiv thermal wing anti ice and
the resulting ice-shedding in flight.
On this type of aircraft wing anti-ice is usually used as a de-icing device
to remove existing ice on the wing, seldom to prevent icing.
I like to remember that, even though it looks very easy to remove ice on
the wings leading edges, ice can still impose a threat to the aircraft,
especially on the engines. It cannot really bring an engine to stop, but it
still can cause some serious damage.
X-15A-2 damage after mach 6.7 flight
This 47 second movie clip shows X-15A-2 damage after a mach 6.7 flight.
The X-15 had its share of emergency landings and accidents, but only two
produced serious injuries or death. On Nov. 9, 1962, Jack McKay experienced
an engine failure and landed at Mud Lake, Nev. The landing gear collapsed,
flipping him and the aircraft on its back. Although he recovered from his
injuries sufficiently to fly again, he eventually had to retire because of
them. On Nov. 15, 1967, on Michael Adams seventh flight, he entered a spin
from which he was able to recover but could not bring it out of an inverted
dive because of a technical problem with the adaptive flight control
system. He died in the resultant crash of the X-15 number three.
