Crash Site Perspective

We've obtained some detailed photos of the Learjet crash site that almost took the lives of DJ AM and Travis Barker.

The photos show the airplane's errant path down the runway, large bits of debris (including the main landing gear) and some frightening shots of the devastation to the plane. It's shocking to think anyone could have made it out alive.

UPDATE: Federal officials say the crew members told air traffic controllers they thought they heard a tire burst and tried to abort takeoff. The Feds say the plane was traveling at least 92 mph (the minimum takeoff speed) when the crew became alarmed. Pieces of tire were found 2800 ft. down the 8600 ft. runway. The plane came to rest on an embankment a quarter-mile past the end of the runway.
