Horrifying footage captured the moment a plane burst into a massive fireball after crashing near a Nashville interstate Monday night, killing all five people aboard the flight.

As WKRN reported, the pilot aboard the single-engine plane sent a distressing message to the control tower at John C. Tune Airport at roughly 7:49 P.M. The pilot requested emergency approval to land because the plane was experiencing engine and power failure.

The Metro Nashville Police Department (MNPD) revealed the plane crashed behind a Costco store off of I-40.

Video footage from nearby traffic cameras shows the plane racing past the lens, right above the highway. Seconds later, the aircraft crashes on a grassy median along the highway and explodes in a giant ball of flames.
