There's a short cameo of a total destruction of a plane in Queen's Innuendo official video (2:11).

Here's the video itself:

And here is a screenshot of the most important frame:

Is anyone able to identify this particular air crash and the airplane involved?

    $\begingroup$ I think a "more important frame" is a few seconds earlier, showing that this is a test aircraft in a controlled crash. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ The problem is that only from this point of Queen's video we have a full screen view of the crash. While the moment described by you is shown only on a small screen, in a so called cinema with pseudo-audience. $\endgroup$

It was a test crash of a DC-7 conducted by the Flight Safety Foundation under contract to the FAA and in conjunction with NASA (among other organizations) in 1964.

Here is the FAA film, and a NASA report.
