I've seen this video circulating quite a bit. The crew is lucky they were only injured. Some skills and luck that pilot had being able to save the plane.

Interested in items related to:

-Amarillo A.A.F. / Amarillo Air Force Base

-Military instillations located in the Texas Panhandle, South Plains, and West Texas.

-"F" Company, 142nd Infantry Regiment, 36th Infantry Division (Texas National Guard)

-413th Civil Affairs Battalion (USAR)

That is an amazing video!!

 

I have seen cable breaks before, and usually the results are deadly and catastrophic!! This crew was very lucky.
