May they all Rest In Peace 😥

Another aviation incident. May all the victims RIP

My friend told me about this a few hours ago, RIP 😔

Seriously horrifying. One of Australias worst commercial plane crash in over 30 years and also one of the worst in Australia ever.

I saw a video about the crash in local media. That’s pretty bad imho. Any casualities reported so far? I hope everyone will be okay.

I am 99.9% sure no one was killed or injured in the shopping centre as it was actually closed and was opening like a hour after the crash.

I don’t know, let’s just leave it to the NTSB and ATSB to investigate.

My news station said that they reported an engine failure before they crashed, but they also said it was 4 people that died, so I’m not sure.

It’s sad really. Having your life cut short while spending the trip of your lifetime. My condolences.

May they all Rest In Peace!

this is terrible news. May our thoughts go out to their families
