In the video, Osin can be seen smiling and grooving on the song. The video was recorded before passengers boarded the plane. Well, who knew that it would be the last TikTok video of Osin. Also, another video of Facebook Live was recorded by an Indian passenger, seconds before the plane crashed. The passenger in the video says ‘Moj Kar Di’, as the plane tilts to take a turn. Sadly, the aircraft didn’t land the right way.

While the exact factors for the crash will be known only after completion of the detailed probe, initially, it looks like the possibility of mishandling by the pilot or malfunctioning of the plane’s angle of attack system.
“The aircraft involved is a 15 year old ATR 72-500 with registration number 9N-ANC and serial number 754. This aircraft was equipped with an old transponder with unreliable data. We are downloading high resolution data and verifying the data quality,” flight tracking website Flightradar24 said in a tweet.
