'Overshot, overshot', pilot's last words?
23 May 2010, 1620 hrs IST
TIMES NOW has accessed what is said to be the last conversation between the Mangalore ATC and the pilot seconds before the devastating tragedy. This ATC-pilot communication seconds before the crash sheds new light on cause of crash.

The transcript accessed by TIMES NOW shows that the ATC had granted the plane permission to approach, in other words the ATC did not feel that the conditions were not favourable for landing.

But then suddenly after the first command, the ATC asked the pilot to abort take off warning pilot Captain Glisika that he was heading for a crash.

The pilot then responds with a muffled exclamation saying overshot, overshot.

This photo taken at the crash scene shows a part of the plane with metal bent outwards.

The photo gallery at epochtimes (warning, images of charred victims still strapped in their seats visible in at least one photo)illustrates the height of the tabletop landing strip and the depth of the gorge into which the plane either slid or fell into.

The remainder of the photos at the epochtimes link show the fragmentation of the plane fuselage as well. One photo appears to demonstrate some of the landing gear was intact. The first picture on the second page of photos also appears to show some pock marks (shrapnel?) in a crinkled section of a segment of skin the plane. In this photo also notice the charged edges of the skin of the plane which is tangled with un-scorched woody growth from the forest.

How did the forest surrounding this fireball not burn?
