I saw that one, pretty sad Would have been better had they waited till weather conditions got better before taking off. That airport is right by the water. Seems like even after crashing into the water no one survived.

"We saw fire falling down from the sky into the sea," said Khaled Nas

Lebanese President Michel Suleiman said terrorism was not suspected in the crash of Flight 409, which was headed for the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa.

"Sabotage is ruled out as of now," he said.


Wait a minute....I must be missing something....
The "fire falling from the sky" would indicate the plane exploded in mid-air...
and "Sabotage is ruled out"??????????????????????????

Are you KIDDING me ?????????

Plane crashes are just as appropriate as any other threads. This is how Moderato gets his attention. So, who wants to deny him that pleasure? Don't we all eventually die anyway? Those who are queasy about deaths don't have to participate in this thread.
