Crash video. Real? Fake?

I dunno. The picture of the T-28 in the article doesn't look like it was involved in a fiery explosion like the one that appeared in that video. Not saying the crash didn't happened but that vid looks a little suspect.

That’s what I thought.
I would have a look at this... the results seem to match that video... wondering if the prop chopped open both fuel tanks and boom...

Supposedly one person's dead and his instructors badly burned so that explosion would explain the CFIs injuries.

The Cessna had just landed on the runway when the T-28 touched down and ran into it, causing the Cessna to explode, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

The T28 landed on top the 152 and the prop went right through it. The CFI is both a professional p91 pilot and flew charter for a aircraft owner. He has like 9k hours and is a bit of a name around LGB for flight instruction when he could be out flying at United or something. We’re all pretty shook over it. The 152 was out of the LB Flying Club.

He was critical as of yesterday.
