Oh it's...it's a terrific crash, ladies and gentlemen. It's smoke, and it's in flames now; and the frame is crashing to the ground, not quite to the morning mast. Oh, the humanity! And all the passengers screaming around here. I told you; it - I can't even talk to people, their friends are on there! Ah ! And everybody can hardly breathe and talk and the screaming. I ... I... I'm sorry. honest: I ... I an hardly breathe. I ...I'm going to step inside, where I cannot see it. Charlie, that's terrible. Ah, ah... I can't.  Listen folks; I ...
