investigators are still looking, they think the aircraft may have stalled but this is just speculation at the moment.  They have found the black box so should be clear soon.   My thoughts are with all those who were on board and their familys x.

when I heard about what happened it reminded me alot of the accident at heathrow with the BA 777, what with the aircraft crashing short of the runway and all; unfortunately this time everyone wasn't so lucky, may the rest in peace x

Ryainair baby... quite common for the a/c to be intact but occupants of F/D to be fatally injured because the velocity is what does the damage... kind of like you stop when the a/c does but vital parts of your body don't...

Sorry to be a bit gory but that kind of explains why it looks kind of survivable... I had hoped they made it out when I saw the picture too... very sad.


I heard one of the FAs was critically injured, any update as to how they are doing?
