I'd be even more terrified of flying. Getting eurostar tomorrow. And not feeling really confident  :glum:

So many personal tragedies :( ...and a sad and jittery week for aviation, that is for sure.

Yesterday a plane (Gulfstream) lost contact with air traffic control and military jets had to be scrambled to escort it to Stansted, causing a short delay and a diversion.  Turned out to be 'nothing'.  They must just be so nervous at the moment when anything like this happens.

These are difficult times for the commercial aviation industry. My heart goes out to the relatives of the victims.

We had quite a long discussion about this back in January when Mikaeel Kular went missing and his body subsequently found.  His mother has now pled guilty to killing him.   :glum:

Oh man, there wasn't all that detail when I posted the link - just the bare facts.  Apologies if it upset anyone.  I will edit my post to give a warning.  :depressed:
