Heartbreaking footage uploaded to social media from inside a doomed aeroplane shows the final moments of a model killed in the horrific Australia Day plane crash.
Endah Cakrawati posted video footage of herself inside the plane to Instagram before it crashed during the annual fireworks display.
The model, along with her partner Peter Lynch, were killed when the 1948 Grumman G-73 crashed into Swan River in Perth as the city prepared to celebrate Australia Day.
During the short clip Ms Cakrawati smiles and chats with Lynch explaining to her fans what she’s doing in the plane.
We’re in Perth and we are ready to go for Skyworks today. Happy Australia Day.
In another clip the plane’s propeller can be seen starting up through the passenger window and she flips the camera to selfie mode as the plane takes off along with the caption ‘display soon’,
Her last words on film before the accident which took place in front of 60,000 witnesses were: ‘Wish me luck’.
Witnesses described the plane as appearing to stall before it nosedived into the water.
Lloyd Douglas a witness to the horrific crash described the scene.
My concern was that he’d landed in amongst all the small boats up at the east end of the Perth water. I don’t think — looking through binoculars — that he did hit other boats.
“It did hit the water with a fairly decent force, and goodness if it had another boat in the water or something it would be a tragedy.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau is now investigating the accident.
It’s as if this guy casts a spell upon every woman around him…no one can resist his French accent, even though it’s fake!
Filmed by Youtube channel Whatever, the guys decided to see how easy it was to get girls’ numbers with by charming them with the language of love.
It seems to work. Some women barely said anything to him and they were typing their numbers into his phone, agreeing to go out and party.
He even went up to some girls and asked ‘do you want to sleep with me tonight?’ and they just handed over their number.
French speaker Marc can come out with silly lines such as ‘Would you like to play with my croissant?’ and the girls just swoon at the accent.
He comes out at the end with nine numbers and had to make very little effort.
Get those GCSE books and baguettes out everyone!
Just when you thought the world wasn’t dangerous enough already, someone has decided to invent a gun that looks exactly like a smartphone.
Yeah, really. Minnesota-based manufacturer Ideal Conceal have made a double-barrelled pistol, which can carry two bullets and even has laser sights.
The .380 calibre handgun can be folded up to look like your bog-standard smartphone and and is expect to go on sale in the U.S. in the coming months, Business Insider UK reports.
According to its manufacturer, it has been designed to ‘hide in plain sight’ and easily fits into a purse or back pocket, making it ‘virtually undetectable’. Terrifying, basically.
On their website, it says:
“The idea for Ideal Conceal follows the present-day demand for handguns that people can carry on a day to day basis, in a manner that makes carrying a gun easy to do. From soccer moms to professionals of every type, this gun allows you the option of not being a victim.”
European police have now been warned to remain vigilant as it’s expected to be imported illegally into the continent after its release.
The pistol was originally supposed to launch in 2016, but an updated post by founder Kirk Kjellberg on January 5th revealed that they’re currently experiencing production delays.
Apparently they’ve already received 12,000 pre-orders for the handgun, which costs $395 (£325) and it’s due to begin shipping some time over the next couple of months.
Turkish police have arrested the main suspect in the New Year’s Eve attack on a nightclub in Istanbul after a manhunt lasting more than two weeks.
Abdulkadir Masharipov is believed to have opened fire at Reina nightclub, killing 39 and wounding 69 others.
The city’s governer, Vasip Sahin, said the suspect had confessed to the attack and that his fingerprints matched those found at the scene.
According to local media, the Uzbek national was arrested after a raid on a home in the Istanbul’s Esenyurt district. He was reportedly found with his four-year-old son.
On January 1, the attacker shot his way into the nightclub before opening fire with an automatic rifle, reloading his weapon half a dozen times.
He fired randomly at people celebrating the new year and shot the wounded laying on the ground.
So-called Islamic State (IS) said it was behind the attack, saying it was revenge for Turkish military involvement in Syria.
Citizens of Israel, France, Canada Tunisia, Lebanon, India, Belgium, Jordan and Saudi Arabia were among the victims. Dozens more were injured.
Numan Kurtulmus, the Turkish deputy prime minister, today congratulated police on capturing the suspect to whom he referred as ‘the perpetrator’.
“I congratulate our police who caught the perpetrator of the Ortakoy massacre,” Kurtulmus said on Twitter. “Our war with terror and the powers behind it will continue to the end.”
