The last message from the pilot reported an engine flame-out... those turbo props are more reliable than swiss watches if maintained properly, I wonder what caused it.
That plane crash video is sickening to watch.
The fact that there are survivors is astounding.
Yep. Seems to me this is quite "light" as far as air crashes go, in regards to speed and angle of impact - more similar to a crash landing than to a downward plunge. Also, reading the crash history of the ATR family, there seem to be plenty of occasions where there were survivors. I don't think I've seen such a high survival rate at the bigger jets.
We have to take this silly test every 5 years. At least I'm in the clear for a while... :shifty:
