      Or it was pilot error. Or weather. Or almost anything else.

      AP has more details than CNN, they report 14 people were killed including the pilots.and do give the type of airplane, they however, failed to give the name of the airline. Let's not try to put blame on anyone until the details are found.

    Pathetic job of putting a story together. I guess including any facts would be too much to ask for. My toddler can write better stories.

    The plane crash happened this morning, the US New outlets are just now getting around to it. I live in Tegucigalpa, so it's been all over the news here for hours. Below is a link to a better article that will give you more information. It is in Spanish, so if you aren't fluent, use Google Translate and it will give you the gist of it. Basically they are saying it was poor visibility that caused it. It was a Central American Airlines flight, btw.

    Let 420 Turolet plane. The weather most likely was a factor-– its cloudy and rainy... to already dangerous airport for land in TGU. 14 killed ( 2 pilots) and 3 Americans onboard...

    CNN posts a useless snippet, and the commenters end up digging up the rest of the information. Classic.

    Sadly, I would have guessed it was an internal flight. Teguz doesn't have the best reputation for safety.

    the local newspaper sites are http://www.laprensa.hn and http://www.elheraldo.hn

    Reports are saying that the pilot changed from instrumental to visual for the descending approach.... weather in honduras right now is cloudy & rainy... limited visibility...
