Greece plane crashes... BIZARRE

THIS IS VERY VERY SAD...

121 dead, nearly 50 of them children...

For those that like to read:
MSNBC

For those that don't want to read:
Video

About 1 hour after the flights take off the captain complaigns about A/C problems. Air traffic controllers loose communication with the jet. Then the 737 Jet flying at a altitude of about 36,000 feet looses cabin pressure and nearly the entire crew and passengers passing out from the lack of oxygen.

Greece authorities scramble 2 F16 fighter jets to their aid and one of those fighter jet pilot's reports seeing the co-pilot slumped over the controls... he take the the side of the plane and sees passengers frantically trying to do something to gain control over this flying graveyard.

All while on the ground a man gets this frightening text message on his cell phone..

No one is being disgraced, thank you very much. This occured last week, its old news (my bad, in my drunk a stooper I saw the EARLY news yesterday). Thats all. Not disgracing anyone or any event.

And I thought Bee was the resident News Posting whore! Your taking away all the fun from him!

He's ok... I'm sure he can handle it... but with that being in mind that it was last week... how come Mr Bee didn't get it up?

To get back on subject...

On the radio today they were talking about the 2 passengers that were in the front of the cockpit trying to gain control... were they holding their breath or were they just some how able to breath in such thin air?

Contradictions, there were not 50 children, read the story in depth. They initially reported this yet state only 15-20 young people under the age of 20.

Always find that bunk though. Who cares if it was 5 children or 100 children on the plane. Bottom line is the 100+ that die, whether children, elders, middle age, or whatever. Lives are lives, not one more important than another.....with acception to your individual life.

it doesnt matter how many of those people were kids or nor......I couldnt imagine being their parents....or their families right now.....instead of fighting about nonsense we should be praying for those families.....at least I know I am.....

One anymore never knows what might happen when you leave your home. You may be hit by another car....ran over crossing a street, a passenger train might disrail.....the next time you board a plane will it be the last thing you ever see!?! They say flying is the safest way to go these days...I am starting to seriously disagree.
