I could not tell what was going on for a while, I presume the big explosion was just part of the show, I thought shockwave had reacted to that but I guess not
Was the explosion planned?? It’s almost like it couldn’t see and had to spin out and lost control because of it
What happen I’m confused
Don't fly on the ground
R.I.P. condolences to the family Prays your way Amen USA
When I was a kid a guy attempted to water speed record on lake sebring in florida I remember seeing that crash very clearly couldn't quite comprehend exactly what happened remember my step dad face we just turned started heading for the car immediately I asked him what happened ????today you seen a man lose his life!!
So the announcer is worrying who will overtake who , already AFTER the accident and huge explosion? That's pretty fked up.
If i had to guess he lost a tire went into a spin and the truck disintegrated, R.I.P. Chris you will be miss bit your memory will carry on.
This comment section zesty asl
Lets hope it was quick and painless. What a guy. He died doing what he loved.
The inspiration on his work made me smile, rest easy Chris Darnell 🙁
I am so sorry to hear that the pilot's life was cut short by the fiery crash. I wish he didn't have to die a painful death from the fierce crash burned him to death. I think that is probably one of the worst ways to die.
What was the explosion before the crash?
At least he went out with a bang.
How did that crash I can't tell?
So tragic, but he died loving life and not suffering from cancer.
Explosions just make more explosions no matter the force.
What happened it looked someone threw a petrol bomb or something the the truck drive through the fire then flipped wtf am I seeing here
BRUH WHY IS THE GUY SPEAKING CALM BRUH
My condolences to the family and friends of the truck driver. It seems as though he passed doing something that he truly loved. May he rest in peace.
Rest in Peace Chris Darnell
A life gone for nothing at all. There is no other way to put it around.
Rip. Sorry Americans for your lose much love from the United Kingdom respect 🙏
Doesn’t a fire proof suit protect him
SOMETHING EXPLODED ON THE TRACK BEFORE HE EVEN GOT TO THE AREA OF THE TRACK WHERE THE FLAMES WERE SO SOMETHING "NOT THE TRUCK NOR ENGINE NOR TIRES" CAUSED HIM TO CRASH
Do stupid things win stupid….we know the rest.
Wow. That is sad
LOOKS LIKE ONLY ONE PARACHUTE DEPLOYED YANKING HIS REAR TO THE LEFT, NOTHING HE COULD DO…
Rip Chris Darnell
"Oh Boy"… You got that right. He pulled the shoot just before the pyro to try and straighten it out… blew the back tires off… God bless.
Rest in peace sir. Saddened to hear the news.
Sad. I neen watching him race for years at the east coast drag strips. God Speed Chris Darnell
So was that large explosion part of the show or was that an accident?
Thoughts and prayers to everyone involved rip legend
what was that first big explosion?
To whomever it's worth, this is the cousin of a dear friend of mine. She wanted to let you all know the whole family appreciates all the condolences and happy memories you've shared. RIP, Chris.
Small minds are easily entertained! Was it worth a life?
You could get a house on wheels to roll down the runway if you strapped enough jet engines to it! What's it prove?
