Clips from Last Night: Plane crash survivor tells his tale; Roseanne Barr shares her regrets

On Thursday, Piers Morgan welcomed plane crash survivors Tol Gropp and Alec Arhets to the program. Gropp and Arhets are two of four men who not only miraculously survived a small plane crash in Idaho but also recorded the entire event.

Morgan asked Arhets if the men ever thought they might be taping their own deaths:

"It never crossed my mind until we started going down," Arhets responded. "And then at that point there you think to yourself, this might be the last evidence or the last time we get - that our family gets to see us."

Actress and comedian Roseanne Barr also joined Morgan to talk about her bid for the presidency as the nominee for the Peace and Freedom Party. During the interview, Barr spoke about a period of time she would like to revisit and do over:

"When you're right at the pinnacle of this strange fame that you don't know how to handle and you just kind of implode and explode and everything else."

"I wish I had done it better," said a remorseful Barr. "Of course, the 'Star Spangled Banner' is a huge regret that pretty much was hard to come back from. A huge - like, you know, something probably I regret that as for my career mistakes. And in my personal life, there are about 3,000 things I regret and wish I'd done better."

Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as the guests retell important moments in their lives.

    As a private pilot, I have a very different view of this crash - as do virtually all pilots who have watched it. This crash was the direct result of serious pilot error. The temperatures were hot, which lessens airplane performance. The pilot's preflight planning should have resulted in a decision not to make this flight. The plane's performance on the takeoff was also a clear indication that the takeoff should have been aborted - not continued. Once barely airborne (really flying close to the ground in what's know as "ground effect"), the pilot chose to continue flying toward rising terrain and trees, rather than choosing to make a shallow turn back to the airport or even landing on the very flat terrain in front of him. As a pilot, I'm mortified by this video. This pilot was not a hero for saving the passengers; instead, the accident is the direct result of very serious errors on his part. It is only good fortune that there were not more serious casualties, rather than due to some actions on the part of this pilot - who crashed and destroyed another plane two years ago.
