A small plunge but a plunge nonetheless. Extra points for having a video

A police officer held on to a lorry to stop it falling as it teetered on the edge of a motorway bridge.
The HGV driver was still inside his cab when PC Martin Willis arrived at the scene on the A1(M) in Yorkshire.
Writing on Twitter, he said he grabbed on to the vehicle to stop it "swaying in the wind".

If he had a gun, the bus would never have tried to plunge.

At least 33 people were killed Saturday after a passenger bus veered off a bridge and plunged(<---n.b.) into a river in the western Indian state of Rajasthan, police said.

Seven injured passengers were hospitalized in Sawai Madhopur district of Rajasthan state, 235 miles south of New Delhi, said police officer Narain Singh.

The speeding bus was trying to overtake another vehicle when it rammed through the bridge railing, said B.L. Soni, another police officer. It fell 65 feet down into the Banas river.

The driver was among the dead, the Press Trust of India news agency said.

Rescuers have recovered 33 bodies from the river and all on board the bus have been accounted for, said Singh. The victims, who were from various Indian states, were on their way to a nearby Hindu temple in Lalsot, a town in Rajasthan state, for pilgrimage.

Peru Bus Plunges Off ‘Devil’s Curve,’ Killing at Least 48
LIMA, Peru — At least 48 people were killed Tuesday when a bus tumbled down a cliff onto a rocky beach along a narrow stretch of highway known as the Devil’s Curve, Peruvian police and fire officials said.

The bus was carrying 57 passengers to Lima, Peru’s capital, when it was struck by a tractor-trailer shortly before noon and plunged down the slope, said Claudia Espinoza, who is with Peru’s voluntary firefighter brigade.

The bus landed upside-down on a strip of shoreline next to the Pacific, the bodies of its passengers strewn among the rocks.

“It’s very sad for us as a country to suffer an accident of this magnitude,” President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski said in a statement.

Rescuers had to struggle to help survivors and recover the dead from the hard-to-reach area in Pasamayo, about 43 miles north of Lima.

Who the fuck thought it was a good idea to put a runway that close to a cliff? Or did they put the cliff next to the runway?

It's all good unless the jet takes a left turn.

I recall that the runway on St Thomas dead ended in a mountain. Some jet had crashed there a couple of years before I went down and the vegetation was still fucked up.

The takeoff was scarier than the landing as I recall.

I think you are suppose to pull back on the stick rather than push forward when you come to a cliff.
