your old iphone? good evening. we begin tonight with the new images of the horror aboard that boeing jet in las vegas. fire erupting in the engine. as the plane was taking off. a terrifying close call for passengers. the pilots racing to stop the plane. the stunning images of the british airways flight engulfed in flames and smoke. those are the passengers there, fleeing for their lives. this new image showing how ferocious the flames were. eating through the skin of the plane. tonight, investigators are on the plane, and so are we, with the exclusive new video. here's matt gutman. >> reporter: tonight, exclusive new video from inside the plane. you can hear the engine blow. moments later, flames shooting through the smoke. even as flight attendants try to calm the passengers.
and then the panicked exodus out of that crippled plane. and just minutes earlier, flight 2276 to london taxis for takeoff. 170 passengers and crew on board. >> good afternoon. we're ready for departure. >> reporter: just seconds before it goes airborne -- >> mayday. mayday. request fire services. >> reporter: the plane slamming to a halt. swallowed in flames and smoke. eyewitnesses say one of the pilots walks out of the cockpit to see for himself. >> he just was like, evacuate! >> we are evacuating on the runway. we have a fire. i repeat, we are evacuating. >> reporter: just two minutes after the call, fire crews arrive, blasting water onto the plane. passengers flopping down emergency chutes. you can see them scampering down the runway. >> is everybody okay? >> reporter: sally dewhurst says she was the first down the emergency slide. what did you see when you looked to the left? >> the whole engine was on fire. >> almost like a river of fire coming at the ramp. >> reporter: 27 people treated
for minor injures. including the pilots, hailed as heroes tonight. >> everybody's good. thank you. >> reporter: that fire burning so hot it went from the engine to the fuselage of the plane, burning its skin. exposing its ribs. you can only imagine how hot it must have been inside that cabin. these images show that molten pieces of the engine shot towards the fuselage. >> if that fire had been able to build and gotten near the fuel tanks, or people couldn't have gotten out, and it maybe had come through the cabin wall, then this could have been very, very serious. >> matt is with us now live. the pilots, incredible work, stopping the jet in just minutes. >> reporter: that's right. had they noticed it just a couple of seconds later, they would not have been able to abort the takeoff, forcing them to lift off with a wing on fire. this could have been a very different outcome. >> matt, thank you. and to a scare at another airport, newark. a united airlines cargo hangar
collapsing. four people injured, first responders at the scene. an investigation is under way at this hour. and in arizona, fears of a possible serial shooter terror. along this eight-mile stretch of highway in phoenix. they're investigating 11 incidents in a little more than a week's time. this new image coming in late today. this back window shattered. and one close call. and a bullet grazing a girl that had been sitting in the passenger seat. and tonight, for the commute home, you can see the sign on the highway, asking, suspicious activity? call that number. kayna whitworth is there. >> reporter: tonight, drivers in phoenix, arizona, under siege. >> we have been living with the fear that someone may be shooting at traffic on i-10. >> reporter: two more incidents today. now 11 incidents in 11 days. authorities not saying if it was a bullet or projectile that
hit the back passenger side of that white pickup truck. >> i would tell you it doesn't matter if it's coming from a handgun, a rifle or a pellet gun. all of those are projectiles. >> reporter: the fbi and atf joining the investigation and the reward raised to $20,000 for any information leading to an arrest. authorities now calling it an act of domestic terrorism. >> these are bad people trying to do harm to good people. >> reporter: the incidents happening along this eight-mile stretch of i-10. it runs right through the heart of phoenix, so now people have something extra to think about. officials asking people to report anything that might be suspicious. the shootings started august 29th. that 13-year-old girl, injured after the window of the car she was riding in shattered. this tour bus also hit. the driver, the only one on board. >> the person almost took me away from my family. >> reporter: and on tuesday, the window of a vehicle driven by a police sergeant also breaking. with no pattern of time or days of the week, people in the phoenix area, seeking refuge from a highway they use every day.
authorities say it would be impractical to shut down the highway. so urging drivers to be extra vigilant. put down the cell phones. take notice of what's happening on the side of the road and other drivers acting strangely. they haven't ruled out someone doing this from a moving vehicle. >> so hard to drive and look both ways. kayna, thanks. now to the race for 20167. and to a new showdown in this country over iran. hillary clinton making the case for the president's groundbreaking deal. saying if elected, she wouldn't hesitate to use military force if iran tried to get a nuclear weapon. meanwhile, trump and a rival are sounding off. jonathan karl with trump tonight. >> reporter: mr. trump goes to washington. hitting capitol hill to rally against the iran nuclear deal. >> never, ever, ever in my life have i seen any transaction so
incompetently negotiated as our deal with iran. >> reporter: light on specifics as usual, but heavier than usual on bravado. >> we will have so much winning if i get elected that you may get bored with winning. >> reporter: while most of trump's gop rivals have been attacking him, today ted cruz, who invited trump to the rally, quite literally embraced him. why donald trump? why was donald trump here? >> well, look, it is not complicated. number one, i like donald. but number two, everywhere donald goes, he brings 100 television cameras. >> reporter: while trump and cruz hammered the deal, palin, too, across town hillary clinton praised it. vowing to take the toughest of tough lines if iran violates the deal. >> i will not hesitate to take military action if iran attempts to obtain a nuclear weapon. >> reporter: big speech by hillary clinton today and she was really talking tough on iran. >> she is trying to get the focus off her because she is a
disaster. honestly, jonathan, if she doesn't, she is in big trouble. i don't see how she goes to the starting gate. >> reporter: the debate on iran formally started today in congress. for all the loud objections from republicans and even some democrats, the bottom line, opponents of the deal do not have the votes to block it. >> jon, thanks. as you heard trump and the republicans say, when the deal is up, there's nothing to stop iran from getting a nuclear bomb. and i pressed hillary clinton. a new analysis saying that they could be close to a bomb after the deal is done. here's how she answered. >> i wanted to ask you about a recent analysis, after 15 years, if iran decides to race for a bomb, the warning time could shrink to weeks. does that concern you? >> of course. everybody about iran concerns me. i do not trust them. to paraphrase president reagan, don't trust. and, yes, verify.
>> you say don't trust, verify. and you also say, cheat and you will pay. >> right. >> and chuck schumer saying inspections are not anywhere, anytime. and that the 24-day waiting period is troubling. does that trouble you, too? >> anything with iran and whether or not it will comply is an open question. there's no doubt about that. but this gives us time. it puts a lid on their nuclear weapons program, and allows us to deal with some of their other troubling behavior. >> our exclusive with hillary clinton. politics for tonight. there are major developments this evening in the showdown over same-sex marriage in kentucky. the county clerk walking free after six days in the last 24 hours for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples.
