The camera focusses in on the Thunderbird as, headless and missing a wing, it spirals into the side of the volcano at hundreds of miles per hour. The resulting impact creates a massive explosion, and as the fireball expands outward, it is wreathed by a halo of electricity. Lightning bolts are outward in all directions and one of them strikes the helicopter. The image spins wildly as panicked screams fill the recording, overlayed by the insistent beeping of the helicopter's controls as emits a stall warning.
At the moment of impact, the recording cuts to static, followed by a blue screen with white lettering apologising for the loss of transmission.
