Transcript for Video shows 2 missiles shooting down Ukraine passenger plane
The new surveillance now uncovered of the Iranian missiles hitting that jet, bringing it down in Tehran. You can see the two missiles streaking across the sky. 30 seconds apart, each of them exploding right when they get to the plane. Iran, of course, now admitting to bringing down the plane, killing 176 people. 63 Canadians. About tonight, the new images and word of the arrests. ABC's David Kerley covers aviation. Reporter: Our first full shootdown tonight. New video showing the missile number one launched and exploding near the jetliner 17 seconds later. A critical clue for investigators. Reports that it took out all communications and recordings on the jet. 30 seconds in, that second missile launches, taking just 11 seconds to reach the jetliner. Nearly a minute later, the flaming wreckage is falling to the ground near the last tracked location of the jet. An explosive impact. One CCTV camera showing debris streaking past the camera. The airplane did not disintegrate after the first impact. The horror is that it went on for a long time. That there was a second missile, and th the airplane flew for almost a minute more as the pilots fought to maintain control. Reporter: Iran having now admitted shooting down the Ukrainian 737, killing all 176 onboard, says it has arrested some individuals, but would not say how many, as Iranians continue to take to the streets, protesting against their government. The shootdown came less than four hours after Iran fired missiles at American targets in Iraq. With Iran's supreme leader now blaming the U.S. For the high tension. More than a third killed, 63 were Canadians. And the prime minister says that trouble between Iran and the U.S. Was a contributing factor. I think if there were no tensions, if there was no escalation recently in the region, those Canadians would be right now home with their families. And David Kerley with us again tonight on all of this. And David, we now know that that plane was actually in the air longer than first thought, after getting hit by the missiles and, of course, many are now wondering if the pilots still had time to struggle to try to keep control of the plane? Reporter: There are reports that the Iranians have radar data, David, that indicates they may have been in control and may have actually tried to turn that aircraft back to the airport. David? David Kerley on this for us again.
