7:04 am
hybrid this osprey people know about takes off, lands like a helicopter but flies like an airplane and makes it a versatile tool for the military since 2007. but a controversial pass because of safety concerns and deadly crashes, now another. here's the aircraft just seconds before it crashes, 22 american servicemen on board. you see it disappear behind the cloud of red dust as it starts to land then -- >> oh. >> reporter: fire and black smoke. >> look at that. it's getting worse. >> reporter: the osprey aircraft going down in what the marines are calling a hard landing during a training exercise in hawaii. >> we saw all three lower, the dust storm continued to where it wasn't visible anymore. when it cleared up we saw two came out and they continued to irk isle but there were just two that came back up. >> reporter: the aircraft breaking apart from the force of the touchdown creating a 60-foot-wide debris field. one marine dead and the other 21 on board squared.

7:06 am
weekend and a violent and very wet one throughout the plains. [ sirens ] >> reporter: a weekend of wicked weather. dozens of tornadoes across the heartland. >> as soon as we hit the floor, in the hallway the whole house started shaking. >> reporter: in kansas look at what's left of this train. a tornado knocking these freight cars on their side. in texas, drenching rains and flash flooding. dozens of water rescues across the state from both vehicles and homes. outside dallas emergency crews using this an unmanned drone getting a rescue line to a family surrounded by floodwaters. a national guard helicopter flying them to safety. in missouri nine confirmed tornadoes. winds reaching as high as 127 miles per hour. buildings destroyed. trees uprooted and a trail of twisted vehicles. so from memphis, tennessee, through mississippi back to eastern texas flash flood watch. a lot of rain to come and we're
7:07 am
talking inch 2 to 3 inches through wednesday. a new storm will bring parts of the plains even up into the rockies, a lot of rain and, yes, 10 to even 20 inches of snow so detailing that coming up. it never ends. came back and it's just blown up. >> you're in business, ginger. thanks. to an alarming claim from a cybersecurity expert. he says he took control of a passenger plane from his seat by hacking into the in-flight entertainment system. some experts questioning if that's even possible. and abc's gio benitez is covering the story from jfk airport in new york. gio, good morning. >> reporter: amy, good morning to you. the fbi is looking into this right now searching through all of its devices but even with doubt, officials are taking this very seriously. it's the scary claim making headlines this morning. a researcher for a cybersecurity firm chris roberts telling the fbi he pulled off a midair hack into a plane's in-flight entertainment system. now in a newly released
7:08 am
affidavit fbi investigators say robes told them he infiltrated the entertainment systems approximately 15 to 20 times from 2011 to 2014 and he claims he then overrode code on a plane's thrust management computer essentially the autopilot system causing one of the airplane engines to climb resulting in a lateral or sideways movement. >> if the information in the affidavit is correct and roberts was able to issue a command like this, obviously that's a huge security concern. >> reporter: roberts was kicked off a united flight last month after tweeting about the plane's vulnerabilities. the fbi meeting him right at the gate and seizing more tan a dozen electronics. >> they took my laptop ipad. a bunch of usb drives. >> reporter: they found the console showed signs of tampering in the location where roberts had been seated. this morning a senior federal law enforcement official telling abc news there is no credible information to suggest an
7:09 am
airplane's flight control can be accessed or manipulated from its in-flight entertainment system" but adding "tampering with them is illegal and will be taken seriously." roberts himself telling us overnight he's focused on improving airport security but wouldn't say any more because of that investigation. meanwhile, this morning united is saying it is confident his claims are unfounded. >> okay gio, thanks very much. more on this from stephen ganyard. you heard it. united says they're confident this didn't happen. is it even possible? >> well i guess the question is what's possible george. was it possible that this guy sat back in his first class seat and flew the airplane around the sky. has he found vulnerabilities in the connection between the in-flight entertainment and potentially the cockpit? that's the question that the fbi wants answered which is why they want to seize his laptop. >> what does this tell us about what terrorists might be able to do if they wanted to take control of the plane. >> i think the aviation is
7:10 am
becoming more and more vulnerable as you add things like why fly and bluetooth and treeing satcom coming in and they make these flights easier and more enjoyable as we travel around the world but makes us much more vulnerable. this internet of things gets hackers the opportunity to inject themselves into places we don't want them such as cockpit controls. but nobody is even looking at this. the faa has no cyberpolicy. so the government's way behind. airlines are concerned. as are the manufacturers. >> and other parts of the transportation system vulnerable, as well. >> they are. i mean we've seen some really scary hacks of people having their cars hacked. you know they'll break when they don't want them to brake and accelerate when they don't want to. ships have satellite communication, big opportunity for hackers to shut down engine freeze controls all these things are vulnerable because they were designed before this cyberage that had these vulnerabilities to hackers. >> we got to catch up with the
7:11 am
technology, okay steve, thanks very much. back to robin in boston. >> all right, george thank you. such a disturbing report. we have the latest on the investigation into that deadly amtrak derailment. here in the northeast, the trains are running again full service restored. you see the first one back on the track this morning. and just moments ago, abc's david kerley was on one of those trains that passed through the exact spot of the derailment in philadelphia. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this is the first train to travel northbound over those repaired tracks, in fact we're getting ready to slow down for that curve where the derailment happened. very busy corridor 11 million people ride these rails every year and this morning investigators though a lead from late last week appears incorrect. this morning, a team of fbi forensic experts arrives in delaware to examine the windshield of this locomotive. a conductor on the train says shortly before the crash, she thought she heard the engineer talking about being hit by a
7:12 am
projectile like other trains around the same time in the same area but the lead investigator told george on "this week," the radio recordings don't bear that out. >> we heard no communications at all from the amtrak engineer to the dispatch center to say something had struck his train. >> reporter: so the question this morning remain why did amtrak 188 accelerate so quickly before that slow corner? we do know that ten minutes after leaving the station in philadelphia it is traveling the speed limit 70 miles an hour then one minute before the derailment a quick acceleration up to 80 miles an hour. then 90 and just 16 seconds before the crash, it's traveling more than 100 miles an hour as it reaches that 50-mile-an-hour curve. the brakes are applied but it's too late. now, investigators are left with two main possibilities. a mechanical failure that accelerated the train or a manual increase of the throttle but if so why, before that slow corner? this is the curve where that deadly derailment happened
7:13 am
taking eight lives and while it took less than seven days for them to restore service it could be months before we learn why the train was traveling so fast that derailed here. robin. >> thank you, david. still so many unanswered questions. now, "gma" weekend anchor dan harris a proud bostonian has the other top stories starting with a major development on the war on isis. good morning, dan? that's right, good morning to you and everybody in boston. a big setback this morning in the fight against isis. the terror group now captured the city of ramadi which is only 0 miles from baghdad and there are disturbing reports of hundreds of iraqi civilians and soldiers being killed. some executed. thousands of others are now fleeing and abc's terry moran is on the story from our london bureau. terry, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, very bad news in the fight against isis. a couple of weeks ago, isis launched an offensive against that key city of ramadi and the iraqi government backed by a lot of u.s. air strikes and other support sent in troops and isis just trounced them. those iraqi troops as they have
7:14 am
so often before just turning tail and running from the battlefield. isis now rampaging through that city executing hundreds and thousands more are throwing. the iraqi government is desperate and they are now asking iran to help by sending in shia militias it controls in iraq that's exactly what the u.s. does not want. and all this really just cuts the rosy statements in recent weeks from the white house and the pentagon on how the war is going. it's going badly. dan? >> and it's possible it could only get worse from here. terry, thank you. back in this country a surprise announcement from president obama concerning the military-style gear and equipment used by some local police departments. the president is now banning the federal government from providing some of that leftover military gear to police placing stricter controls on weapons and equipment such as armored vehicles. critics raise concern about misuse of the equipment in the wake of last we're violence in the city of ferguson missouri. new concerns this morning about the bird flu outbreak the worst in history.
