Killer Takeoff Trap

Again, I didn't know where to put this so it ended up in LTUP.

Wake turbulence is a well known phenomenon, but I would not have expected it to be so severe from an AN-2

I had been watching small full scale plane crashes. There was a small twin that had an engine failure on takeoff, the left one. The tower didn't know he just had an engine failure. He was told to turn left, into the stalled engine. BIG mistake, it immediately stalled, then went into a spin, maybe 200 feet up. Cost 3 lives in the plane and 10 on the ground to a large impact and fire.

Never turn into a stalled engine. Several things will throw it into a stall and maybe spin. That one sort of got me, to see those people hit and immediately get consumed in a huge fireball.

Don't watch if it may disturb you.
