New amateur video has been released showing the devastating aftermath of the holiday jet crash that killed 153 people at Madrid's airport on Wednesday.
Spanair, which owned the plane, has now confirmed that a gauge was overheating while the plane was taxiing, forcing a first take-off attempt to be aborted.
Technicians corrected the problem by turning off the gauge. After the correction, the plane was cleared to fly. However it crashed off the Madrid runway, killing nearly all of the 175 people on board.
