“Only a Twin-Otter”? What a load of crap! There are 10 souls on-board that aircraft, they could all be dead! Have some respect! When people here reports of a car crash and the car that crashed was a Nissan Micra, They don’t go and say “At least it wasn’t a Lamborghini” do they?!
Yes, fortunately. I know 10 people could be confirmed dead, and I pay my respects. But it is only a minor incident, a major incident IMO is over 50 people confirmed dead, and I felt sorry for those on JAL123. But also remember, the media can come up with a lot of rumours. You never know, it could be found diverted to another airport, @B767fan don’t get so upset, we yet to find out the truth!
I know he does, he knows he does, you don’t know he does. I know your comparison is a real deal, no one would care if it was a Nissan Micra. But it’s like school really, compared to the most unpopular kid pulling out, to the popular football sporty guy pulling out, the popular guy will be missed much. But remember, don’t always focus on the news. I focus on the news when I want to hear the weather, I read aviation articles on avgeek websites to find out about aviation in general, incidents and accidents and also new arrivals. Calm Down, it’s okay… The media are like a bunch of monkeys, they steal and throw crap at eachother :)
